Raspberry Almond Squares

Raspberry Almond Bars
These are such a delicious treat with fresh raspberry jam, this summer!


Ingredients:
  • 1 cup of softened butter
  • 1 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of almond extract
  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 6 tablespoons of raspberry jam
Streusel 
  • 4 tablespoons of chilled butter
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 3/4 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of sliced almonds


Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350°F

Line a 9 x 13 baking tin with parchment paper.

In a bowl, cream together the softened butter (1 cup) and sugar (1 1/2 cups) with an electric mixer.

Add in the eggs and almond extract and mix.

Add in the flour little by little.

The batter should look like this.

Pour the batter into the baking pan.

If your jam isn't very liquid, warm it up a little, and spoon onto the batter.

Using a knife, swirl it into the batter.

Next, put the chilled butter, cubed, in a medium size bowl.

Add the sugar, flour and almonds.

With a pastry cutter, or your hands (to start), cut the butter into the sugar, flour and almonds, until it has combined like this:

Sprinkle the streusel mixture over the batter evenly.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the edges have become golden.
Also, stick a fork in, and see if it comes out clean.
If not, put it in for a little longer
Let cool, and cut into squares.
