These delicious treats will square up to any other dessert. They’re made with a yummy raspberry jam filling and topped with chocolate chips over a satisfyingly sweet crumble.

Ingredients

1 3/4 cups 425 mL Robin Hood® Original All Purpose Flour
1 cup 250 mL granulated sugar
1 cup 250 mL butter, softened
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp 2 mL almond extract
1 cup 250 mL Smucker’s® Pure Raspberry Jam
1/2 cup 125 mL chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Grease an 8" (20 cm) square cake pan and line with parchment paper.
  2. Combine flour and sugar in a medium mixing bowl. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or two knives until crumbly.
  3. Tip

    Move over pastry blender. Let your kids crumble the dry ingredients together using clean hands.

  4. Add the egg and almond extract. Mix well. Set aside 1 cup (250 mL) of the mixture for the top.
  5. Press remaining dough in prepared pan.
  6. Tip

    Little hands are great for getting into the corners of pans, so ask your kids to help you pat the mixture into the pan.

  7. Spread the jam on top and sprinkle reserved crumbles over jam.
  8. Tip

    Ask your helper to sprinkle the remaining mixture over top of the jam. Once the bars come out of the oven, they can also sprinkle the chocolate chips once the squares are warm to touch.

  9. Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until light golden. Quickly sprinkle chocolate chips on top of warm squares. Cool completely, cut into squares and serve.
