“One of the quickest, tastiest bar cookie recipes I've used. You can alter the taste by changing fruit preserve flavors. It's a perfect cookie to bring to any pot luck function, but make sure you bring the recipe too, people will ask for it!” - by wwgirl
Original recipe yields 1 - 9x13 inch pan
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.
- In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Cut in the shortening until the mixture is coarse and crumbly. Stir in the egg. I use my hands to mix it all together, it just seems easier. Press about half of the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread the raspberry preserves over the crust then sprinkle with the remaining crumb mixture.
- Bake for about 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly toasted. Careful not to overcook. Cool in the pan on a wire rack. Then cut into squares, enjoy!

"These are fantastic. I have made them probably 4 times already and just realized I hadn't rated them yet. I usually do half white and half whole wheat flour and I add a bit of ground flax seed too. ..." See moreI have done strawberry and raspberry. But our favorite was using my homemade Wild Maine Blueberry freezer jam. Oh So Good! They do crumble a bit at first but if they cool all the way they hold together just fine. I am going to have to try putting nuts in it too. I bet that's a great addition. Thank you wwgirl."
"Very, very good bar! 4-1/2 stars, since they're delicious, but didn't rock our world or make us crave them. I made easy even easier by combining all ingredients in the food processor. A few pulses and..." See more you're done! Good, short texture to the cookie part. Used 1/3 butter and 2/3 margarine in order to give a little more flavor. I multiplied the recipe by 1.5 and made in two 9" square pans, one with raspberry and one with strawberry. Both are tasty. Because eggs don't divide well, I couldn't use 1-1/2 eggs. I used 2 eggs and the dough wasn't crumbly at all. I flattened pieces to lay on top. Both varieties were done at 30 minutes. Sprinkled with powdered sugar for a pretty finish. Note: These bars can be made with fresh berries, too. See Berry Crumb Bars on this website, which is almost identical (with the exception of replacing preserves with fresh fruit.)"
"These are very sweet and delicate. I only had half a jar of seedless raspberries so I added the only thing I had left in the fridge...grape jelly (that could explain the sweetness)!!! There are crum..." See morebly and at first I didn't think they would bake up very well. Make sure you let the bars cool completely before trying to cut since they do crumble easily. However, we couldn't stop eating them!!! I would like to try these with other jam and jelly fillings next time."
