BEAT butter, sugar and brown sugar in large bowl with mixer on medium-high speed until light and fluffy. The bars should be baked at 350°F/180°C. What’s the temperature for baking 35 mins?

If you click on the recipe tab, in the top right corner of the recipe you’ll find a button where you can toggle between cup and metric measures. I even made them using leftover homemade cranberry sauce after Thanksgiving in lieu of raspberry jam. Hi Mia, It really shouldn’t be particularly wet. Made these bars today and they’re absolutely yummy! When they bake the strawberry jam gets all gooey and binds the oatmeal and shredded coconut topping together. So, SO good. I doubled and used 9 by 13 per your suggestion. They were a great hit with no leftovers. 5. Our company go-to, and I am *always* asked for the recipe. Even better the next day when the jam soaks into the cookie. Easy to put together, but difficult to resist eating all of them in one sitting.

These are my absolute new favorite cookie. I love the pecan/oatmeal/coconut combo in the crusty part. Hi Marge, I’ve only used a food processor for this, but one reader commented that the used the smoothie cup on her ninja blender instead of a food processor, so I think it’s worth a try. I made this over the weekend, and got rave reviews at home and then on Monday at work. Thank you for the tips!! I’m buying a bag of pecans from Costco because I see myself making this recipe at least once a month. Will make them again.. Love the recipe.

My recipe is made with melted butter with egg used to slightly soften and bind the mixture (most raspberry bar recipes do not use egg), and the end result is very similar to the biscuit base made using the traditional method The biscuit base of the traditional method is slightly softer, slightly more shortbread like.
