Razz-Ma-Tazz Bars

The name of these bars intrigued me so I just had to make them and taste them. They were not a disappointment. The cookie crust along with the raspberry jam made for an interesting combination. We are lucky enough to have our own raspberries and homemade raspberry jam, so I used that for the filling. The recipe calls for jam without seeds, but my jam had seeds and that is what I used. Don't know what difference it really makes. You can't even notice the seeds while enjoying the bars. The use of almond extract adds a special flavor. Whenever I can use almond extract, I do so; like in frosting or cherry pie, etc. Love that flavor! Also I do not own a 9" square baking pan so I used my 7"x11" oblong pan.

This recipe is not very healthy, but sooooooooooooooooo good! We use it for splurging once in a while.

      The title of the bars was what caught my attention, too, ChristyWrites. I just had to try them, especially since they use raspberry jam. Thanks for reading and commenting.
