  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 15-1/2 x 10-1/2 x 1 inch jellyroll pan.
  2. Cream butter, 1/2 cup of the sugar and egg yolks until well blended. Add flour and mix well. Pat dough evenly into bottom of prepared pan and bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.
  3. Remove pan from oven (but leave oven on). Let cool for 5 minutes then spread with the jam. Beat egg whites and salt until stiff but not dry. Carefully fold in remaining sugar and the chopped nuts.
  4. Gently spread on top of the jam, making sure to seal edges and corners. Return to oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cut into 3 X 1 inch bars while still warm. May be stored airtight at room temperature up to a week. May also be frozen. Defrost covered at room temperature.

I absolutely love this recipe! I was bored one day and found this and made it. I left out the walnuts because i didnt have any but i doubt it needed them. My family went crazy over it and said i...

LOVE these bars! I scatter semisweet chocolate chips over the jam and let them melt, then put on the meringue. Yum. Chocolate and raspberry!

I sprinkled the walnuts over the jam and then I put the meringue on. I sprinkled a few more walnuts on top of that instead of folding them into the meringue. Great recipe! Thanks Rosina!

This was really easy to make but tasted like you spent hours. Terrific! I wouldn't change a thing.
