Ingredients

  • 2 sticks of unsalted butter at room temperature

  • 1 cup fresh raspberries

  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9-inch square baking pan with cooking spray.
  • Place the butter and sugar in a large bowl. Beat with a mixer until just combined.
  • Add the vanilla and mix on low.

  • With the mixer on low, slowly add the flour to the butter mixture, mixing until it almost comes together in a ball.
  • Turn the dough out on a board.
  • Lightly pat two-thirds of the dough evenly on the bottom of the prepared pan, about 1/4 inch up the sides.
  • Spread the jam evenly, leaving 1/4 inch border.
  • Sprinkle with the fresh raspberries.
  • Mix the granola and almonds into the remaining dough with your hands.
  • Break dough into small bits and distribute it on top of the jam.
  • Place into the oven and bake the bars for 45 minutes, or until lightly browned.
