Raspberry Crumble

This is another great recipe from the Barefoot Contessa! Be sure to combine the last third of the dough and the granola and sprinkle it on it fine bits before adding the sliced almonds! You can make this with any jam you have-I just tried it with a pear vanilla jam and it looks delicious!

Raspberry Crumble Bars

2 sticks (8 oz.) unsalted butter, room temp.

3/4 c. sugar

1 t. vanilla extract

2 1/3 c. flour

1/2 t. salt

10 oz.  or less good quality seedless raspberry jam, like Hero or Mamman or Stonewall Kitchen

2/3 c. granola without fruit

1/4 cup sliced almonds

powdered sugar to garnish, optional

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Place the butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and mix on medium speed just until combined. With the mixer on low, add the vanilla.

Sift the flour and salt together and, with the mixer on low, slowly add to the butter mixture, mixing until it almost comes together in a ball. Turn the dough out on a board. Lightly pat two-thirds of the dough evenly on the bottom of a 9-inch square baking pan and about ¼ inch up the sides. Spread with the jam, leaving a ¼-inch border. Mix the granola into the remaining dough with your hands. Break the dough into small bits, and distribute it on top of the jam, covering most of the surface. Sprinkle the almonds on top. Bake the bars for 45 minutes, until lightly browned.

Cool completely and cut into 9 or 12 bars. Sprinkle lightly with confectioners’ sugar.
