Bowling Night Raspberry Bars

My mama was on a bowling team.  For some reason, the crew of them got into the habit of taking cookies and bar cookies with them to the bowling alley.  These were a quick fix and one of my favorites.  I liked bowling night! She’d leave two on a saucer for me. I’d read and nibble until bedtime.

RASPBERRY COOKIE BARS

CRUMB MIXTURE
2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1 egg
FILLING 3/4 cup seedless raspberry preserves**

Heat oven to 350°F. Line 8-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil, extending foil over edges. Grease foil; set aside.

Combine all crumb mixture ingredients in large bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Reserve 2 cups crumb mixture; set aside. Press remaining crumb mixture on bottom of prepared baking pan. Spread preserves to within 1/2 inch of edge. Crumble reserved crumb mixture over preserves.

Bake 40-50 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely; cut into bars.  Makes 8 large or 16 smaller.

**You can use your favorite preserve flavor

    I like all berries, but raspberries are definitely my favorites.
