Ingredients

Bars

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

1 cup sugar

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup chopped pistachios

1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam

Drizzle

1/2 cup powdered sugar

2 to 3 teaspoons milk

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine butter and sugar in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add flour and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  3. STEP 3

    Divide dough in half; press half into ungreased 9-inch square baking pan. Bake 13 minutes.

  4. STEP 4

    Mix chopped pistachios into remaining dough until well combined.

  5. STEP 5

    Spread jam over hot, partially baked crust to within 1/2 inch of edge. Sprinkle remaining dough mixture over jam. Bake 30-33 minutes or until top is light golden brown. Cool completely.

  6. STEP 6

    Combine powdered sugar and enough milk for desired drizzling consistency in bowl. Drizzle over bars.

Tip #1

- Use salted peanuts, cashews or hazelnuts instead of pistachios for a different flavor.

Tip #2

- Try strawberry, red currant or apricot jam instead of raspberry jam.

Tip #3

- To make ahead, prepare bars as directed; do not prepare drizzle. Freeze bars up to 1 month. Thaw. Combine powdered sugar and enough milk for desired drizzling consistency in bowl. Drizzle over bars.

I have been making these bars at Christmastime for several years. Never before have I received so many compliments, positive remarks, and requests for this recipe as I do when I share these bars. The blend of ingredients/flavors is amazing and so simple. I wouldn't change a thing. They make a great homemade gift on their own or a nice addition to your Christmas cookie tray. Suggestion: Spend the extra buck or two to buy the already shelled pistachios to save time and hassle. Also, the bars are a great breakfast treat or addition to brunch.
