  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Blend in the egg yolks. Gradually mix in the flour to form a dough. With lightly floured hands, press half of the dough into the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread evenly with raspberry jam. Flatten pieces of the remaining dough and place them over the raspberry layer to cover the top.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly golden. Cool slightly before cutting into bars.

I took this to a pot-luck last night, and it was well recieved. The dough is quite rich, and the jam inside is a nice surprise. It was far from completely baked at 30 minutes. We left it in t...

I can always count on Allrecipes.com!! I went to a party and the baker of these bar cookies would not give up the recipe....I have given several of mine & I thought there would be a trade. How...

I had a little trouble putting the extra batter on top of the jam, but overall these were delicious! Handy recipe too, with very few ingredients.

I followed the recipe to a t and I did not care for it. Was a batter not a dough and would not get done even after an hour.

Very easy and very yummy! I love that it has so few ingredients!
