I was in the mood for something sweet and easy over the weekend. I didn’t want to spend a long time baking or cleaning, so I whipped up some homemade Raspberry Walnut Bars to satisfy my sweet tooth craving. This are so quick and easy to make and once they cool down, they are so yummy. I know that you will enjoy them as much as I did.

These cookie bars have a great shortbread crust with a crispy, walnut topping that sandwiches the sweet raspberry jam. You just need one bowl and a few basic ingredients that you should have in your pantry.

You can swap out the raspberry jam for any flavor that you want. I happened to use raspberry because I sent my husband to the grocery store for strawberry jam. I guess because they are both bed he just grabbed the first one he saw.  So, now I have a jar of raspberry jam that my kid won’t eat. I’ll probably be making more treats with the raspberry jam. I’m the only one who likes it, so I may as well enjoy it.

I hope that you like it too 🙂
