I made a platter of these raspberry crumble bars for my mom for Mother’s Day. I thought these would go really well with hot tea and the British TV mystery DVD I got her, Midsomer Murders, I think it was called.
I found the recipe in a cookbook on loan from my mom: Foolproof by Barefoot Contessa.
The first layer is a thick, buttery shortbread dough pressed flat into a square baking dish.
The second layer is an entire jar of good raspberry jam, spread to the edges with a rubber spatula.
The third layer is a crumble made with some of the shortbread dough you set aside at the beginning, mixed with a handful of granola sans dried fruit.
You top the whole thing with a handful of sliced almonds and bake for 45 minutes.
My kind of dessert. And my mom’s!
