Raspberry Crumble Bars


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 10 - 12 ounces raspberry jam (I prefer seedless)
  • 2/3 cup granola without dried fruit
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • Confectioners' sugar, for sprinkling


1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9-inch square pan with parchment so that opposite edges hang over sides of pan.
2. Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until combined; add the vanilla and salt. Add flour gradually, mixing until dough just comes together. Pat 2/3 of the dough evenly on the bottom and about 1/4 inch up the sides of the prepared pan. Spread dough with jam, leaving 1/4-inch border. Mix granola into the remaining dough, breaking dough into small bits; distribute crumb mixture on top of the jam. Sprinkle with almonds and bake until lightly browned, about 45 min. cool completely and lift from pan using the parchment; cut into  9 or 12 bars. Sprinkle lightly with confectioners' sugar.
