Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 15-1/2 x 10-1/2 x 1 inch jellyroll pan.
  2. Cream butter, 1/2 cup of the sugar and egg yolks until well blended. Add flour and mix well. Pat dough evenly into bottom of prepared pan and bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.
  3. Remove pan from oven (but leave oven on). Let cool for 5 minutes then spread with the jam. Beat egg whites and salt until stiff but not dry. Carefully fold in remaining sugar and the chopped nuts.
  4. Gently spread on top of the jam, making sure to seal edges and corners. Return to oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cut into 3 X 1 inch bars while still warm. May be stored airtight at room temperature up to a week. May also be frozen. Defrost covered at room temperature.

Great tasting. Much easier if you spread the nuts on top of jam instead of trying to fold into egg whites.

this turned into a sticky, crumbly mess. It was however, a tasty mess.

Really delicious. Everyone raved about them and asked to take some home. I had to change the recipe a little to use what I had on hand, so I ended up using apricot preserves, and chopped pecans instead of chopped walnuts. I plan on using the original recipe next time. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

I absolutely love this recipe! I was bored one day and found this and made it. I left out the walnuts because i didnt have any but i doubt it needed them. My family went crazy over it and said it was one of the best desserts I've made yet (I make a lot of desserts). I will definitely make this again.

LOVE these bars! I scatter semisweet chocolate chips over the jam and let them melt, then put on the meringue. Yum. Chocolate and raspberry!

I sprinkled the walnuts over the jam and then I put the meringue on. I sprinkled a few more walnuts on top of that instead of folding them into the meringue. Great recipe! Thanks Rosina!

This was really easy to make but tasted like you spent hours. Terrific! I wouldn't change a thing.

I brought these bars to a barbecue and they got rave reviews! I was a little worried when I made them because people were talking about how messy they were--I just lined the pan with foil and pulled them out to cut them and it was no big deal. I followed the other reviewers' advice and sprinkled the nuts on the raspberry jam.
