Raspberry Linzer Bars

The crust for these raspberry bars has plenty of spices and walnuts—the perfect foil for tangy-sweet raspberry preserves.

Serves 24

Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 75 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 chopped walnuts, divided
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated orange zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 tablespoon water
  • 3/4 cup seedless raspberry jam
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-by-9-inch or 7-by-11 1/2-inch baking pan with cooking spray.

Step 2

Combine flour, sugar, 1/2 cup walnuts, cocoa, orange zest, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves in a food processor. Pulse until walnuts are finely chopped. Add egg, oil and water; process until moistened. Transfer to prepared pan. Press into an even layer. Bake crust until dry to the touch and barely golden, 20 to 25 minutes.

Step 3

Whisk jam and orange juice in a bowl. Spread evenly over the crust. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons walnuts. Bake the bars until jam bubbles, 10 to 15 minutes longer. Transfer pan to a wire rack and cool completely before cutting into bars.
