Key Ingredients
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar, plus more for pan
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine
  • 2 cups (12-ounce package) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Premier White Morsels, divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam
  • 1/4 cup toasted sliced almonds
Make It
Step 1
Preheat oven to 325° F. Grease 9-inch-square baking pan; coat lightly with sugar.
Step 2
Melt butter in medium, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; stir. Add 1 cup morsels; let stand. Do not stir.
Step 3
Beat eggs in large mixer bowl until foamy. Add 1/2 cup sugar; beat until light lemon colored, about 5 minutes. Stir in morsel-butter mixture. Add flour, salt and almond extract; mix at low speed until combined. Spread 2/3 of batter into prepared pan.
Step 4
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until light golden brown around edges. Remove from oven to wire rack.
Step 5
Heat jam in small, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 30 seconds; stir. Spread jam over warm crust. Stir remaining morsels into remaining batter. Drop spoonfuls of batter over jam. Sprinkle with almonds.
Step 6
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until edges are browned. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars.
