Pistachio Layer Bars


Pistachio Raspberry Gem Bars

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped pistachios
1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam, or cherry


1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 to 3 teaspoons milk


Heat oven to 350°F. Combine butter and sugar in large bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour and salt. Continue beating until well mixed.

Divide dough in half; press half into ungreased 9-inch square baking pan. Bake 13 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix chopped pistachios into remaining dough until well combined.

Spread jam over hot, partially baked crust to within 1/2 inch of edge. Sprinkle remaining dough mixture over jam. Bake for 30 to 33 minutes or until top is light golden brown. Cool completely.

Combine powdered sugar and enough milk in small bowl for desired consistency. Drizzle over bars. MUCHO YUMBO!
