Almond Raspberry Streusel Bars

Digging out from yesterday’s snowstorm, Valentines Day approaching… today I decided it was time for a treat for us! And these are super easy and made with ingredients you probably have in your pantry!

  • 1 pouch Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
  • 1/3 c butter (softened)
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 c raspberry jam (seedless)
  • 1/4 c crushed almonds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8 inch square pan (I used a metal pan).

Mix cookie mix, flour, butter, almond extract and egg. It’s going to end up being a little course.

Press two thirds of the batter into the bottom of the pan (reserve the last third of the batter). Bake for 15 minutes. While the bottom layer is baking, add the crushed almonds to the reserved batter and mix to combine.

Remove bottom layer from oven and carefully spread jam over the base. Crumble batter/almond mix over the raspberry layer. Return to oven and back 20-25 minutes until the top is golden brown.

Let pan cool completely, then cut into squares (I cut mine into 5×5 bars)
