Rich Raspberry Bars

I am posting for Nancy(Eyvon) today because she is on the road back to Rexburg. I will still do my post tomorrow. Sharee, my niece requested this recipe and it sounded good so I made some. They are quite rich but very yummy. This is actually Trina's recipe.

1 cup butter, softened (not melted)
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 cup of raspberry jam (I use home made freezer jam which is my favorite but whatever kind of raspberry jam you have will do)

Heat oven to 350 degrees. I use a glass pyrex so I only heat my oven to 325. Mix butter, sugar, egg, vanilla until blended. Add the flour until mixed. Save 1 cup of the mixture for the top. Spread the rest in a 8 or 9 inch square pan. Spread the jam on top and then top with the cup of reserved dough. The easiest way to do this is to spread pieces out in your hands and place on top of the jam. Cover completely. Bake for about 40-45 minutes. The edges have to be slightly brown to get the middle of the pan done. Enjoy!
