Raspberry Bars

I am very lucky to get a picture of these bars.  I made the mistake of making them while Taylor had a bunch of boys over.  They devoured them.  They were so good one of the boys asked if he could bring the last two home to his Mom and Dad.  How could I say no? Easily. His Dad was still at work, and I didn't get one yet  so, I let him take one home to his Mom. As soon as he left, I ate the last one :)  Boy am I glad I did !! Make these, you'll be glad you did.


Crust:


1 1/4 c. flour

1/2 c. sugar

1/2 c. butter or margarine

Topping:

2/3 c. flour

1/2 c. chopped pecans (optional)

1/3 c. packed brown sugar

6 Tbsp. butter or margarine, softened

1/2 c. raspberry jam (or another kind you like)

2 c. milk chocolate chips


For Crust:

Combine flour and sugar in a bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press onto the bottom of a greased 8x8 or 9x9 pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 18-22 minutes until set but not brown.

For Topping:

Combine flour, pecans, and brown sugar in same bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender. Spread jam over hot crust. Sprinkle with topping crumbs and chocolate chips. Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into bars
