Raspberry Crumble Bars


My daughter requested some sort of fruit crisp for school lunch treats this week but those aren’t always easy to pack for a school lunch. These raspberry bars I found in my Barefoot Contessa Foolproof cookbook looked delicious and would travel well in a lunch box. I adapted the recipe a little by using homemade raspberry freezer jam along with some fresh raspberries. My kids were absolutely thrilled with these raspberry crumble bars and my husband is too. They are rich, decadent, and so tasty.

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.
Combine the flour and salt together. 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.
Remove from the oven and cool completely. Cut into 9 or 12 bars. Serve and enjoy.
