Raspberry Bliss Bars
1/2 c. (1 stick) butter
2 c. (12 oz. package) white chocolate chips
1/2 c. sugar
1 c. flour
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. almond extract
1/2 c. raspberry jam
1/4 c. slice almonds
Directions: Preheat oven to 325. Grease and flour a 9 inch square pan. Melt butter in 2 cup measuring cup. Add 1 cup white chocolate chips and let stand for 5 minutes. DO NOT STIR! Beat eggs in large bowl until foamy. Add sugar, beat until it is a light lemon color, about 5 minutes. Stir butter mixture into sugar mixture.
Add flour, salt, and almond extract; mix on low speed until combined. Spread 2/3 of prepared batter into prepared pan.
Bake 15-17 minutes or until it is light golden brown around the edges. Heat jam for 30 seconds in the
microwave; stir. Spread jam over warm crust. Stir remaining white chocolate chips into remaining batter. Drop spoonfuls of batter over jam. Sprinkle with almonds. Bake 25-30 minutes. Let cool completely before serving.
