This recipe is really really good. No changes needed - some members suggested less sugar or sugar-free preserves but I thought everything was just right (and I don't like overpoweringly-sweet things.) Took about 8 minutes longer to cook than the recipe says but it makes quite a few. I will make this again! Read More

It's basically a Toll House bar with jam. It was nice but my family preferred the cookie without the raspberry. Read More

These are very good and easy to make! I used the dark chocolate chips and reduced-sugar raspberry jam instead and they came out fantastic! The low-sugar preserves add a little bit of tartness to the otherwise-very-sweet cookie bar. Family loved it would definitely make these again. Read More

Very yummy followed the recipe with the minor exception of using butter flavored shortening since that is all I had on hand -- if I were to make again I would probably reduce the chocolate chips to a cup and a half as they took over a little bit and I would probably like to taste a little more cookie and raspberry.

Definitely sweet...I used 1 cup of white chocolate chips and 1 cup of milk chocolate chips. I only had half a cup of raspberry jam so I used half a cup of blackberry jam to make up the difference. If I make these again I may cut back the chocolate chips to 1 and 3/4 cups because the bars were very sweet. Read More

This recipe is a keeper. The red from the jam shows through the top crust and looks nice. Chocolate and raspberry together how can you go wrong? Read More

Absolutely delicious. I used my home canned raspberry jam. The people at the meeting loved it seeds and all. Read More
