Making Raspberry Chocolate Chip Crumb Bars

The beauty of this easy recipe is it takes just one mixing bowl and one baking pan. This is why I love bar cookies. So easy!

Once you have the shortbread batter, simply press most of it on the bottom of your pan and spread with your favorite jam or preserves.

We’re huge raspberry jam fans but substitute what your gang likes most!

The topping is actually some of the reserved dough with chopped nuts mixed in. I used cashews because that’s what I had on hand, but walnuts, pecans or almonds would work perfectly too.

You can make these without chocolate chips if you had to, but they just make everything better in our book.
