Calling For Christmas Cookie Recipes (2010) (Cont.)

I like to experiment with cookie recipes to try to fill a perceived hole in the cookie spectrum.  This year, I decided I needed a non-lemon fruit bar cookie, so I came up with the recipe below.  It worked out well.  It has a nice, rich color that looks good in a cookie box, and it tastes good, too.

Nutty Raspberry Bars

Ingredients:  1/2 cup margarine, 1/4 cup powdered sugar, 1 cup flour, 1 cup raspberry jam, 1/2 cup Grape Nuts

Mix margarine, powdered sugar, and flour in a bowl.  Pat mixture into 9-inch square pan.  Bake mixture at 325 degrees for 20 minutes.

Heat raspberry jam in a microwave for 45 seconds or until it is loose and easily spreadable.  Pour jam over bottom layer, spreading with a spoon or spatula until bottom layer is covered.  Sprinkle Grape Nuts over raspberry covering.  Return to oven at 325 degrees for 25 minutes.  After removing from the oven, let stand for several hours, until the jam topping as solidified, then cut into bars.
