I used a whole bag of white baking chips because 1 cup was just not enough for me. I also added 1/4 cup of oats to the crumble topping. Instead of using jarred preserves, I made my own with fresh raspberries. I added two containers of raspberries to a pot with 1 cup of sugar, 3/4 cup of water, 1 tsp salt, 2 tsp of vanilla extract and the juice of one lemon and simmered over medium heat until the berries broke down. I took some of the berry mixture and put in a small bowl and mixed with cornstarch and made a slurry and added back to the pan and repeated this process until it was to the consistency I desired. (Add more sugar if you want sweeter or less if you want more tart). Let cool. These bars are absolutely delicious and so easy to make.

My sister would not share her raspberry bar recipe in fear i would begin making it and giving it to family at the holidays. I searched on web and immediately knew this was probably close to what she made. I made it - for friends and co-workers, not family, and it turned out TERRIFIC. Easy and delicious, just wish it didn't have so much butter in it.

I made these for a graduation party cookie tray and they were gone first. I then gave the recipe to my sister, who baked them and entered them in a county fair. She got a blue ribbon on them and several requests for the recipe. A definite keeper.

These are an easy, wonderful tasting cookie. It's a great blend of flavors without being overly sweet. I make them often for potlucks and everyone always wants the recipe.

ANOTHER RECIPE I USED FOR THE LUNCHEON, AND MORE RAVE'S. I HAD A LARGE JAR OF SUGAR FREE STRAWBERRY PRESERVE'S SO I USED THAT ALONG WITH VERY LITTLE SEEDLESS RASPBERRY JAM I HAD LEFT IN THE JAR. IT WAS EXCELLENT. IN FACT, USING THE SUGAR FREE PRESERVE'S DID NOT MAKE THEM OVERLY SWEET. JCB

Of all the cookies I make, these are my signature cookie, and the most requested by everyone. They always come out perfectly! They are a perfect mix of raspberry, white chocolate, and shortbread type base. I highly recommend these great cookies!
