Raspberry Shortbread Squares_comp

A delicious shortbread crumb topping on these raspberry squares make these a knockout!

A great recipe for the holidays, for Valentine’s Day, for Teas, or for any time!

These deserve good quality raspberry preserves.   Enjoy!”

Servings: 12


1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla paste or extract
2-1/4 cups flour
8 ounces seedless raspberry preserves 


1. Preheat oven to 325º.
2. Spray or grease a 9-inch pan.
3. In a large bowl of mixer on medium speed beat the butter, sugar, confectioner’s sugar, and vanilla paste or extract until smooth and light.
4. Add the flour slowly until a dough forms.
5. Press three-quarters of the dough into the prepared pan. Important: Refrigerate the remaining dough.
6. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the edges are a light brown.
7. Remove the pan from the oven and spread the raspberry preserves over the dough.
8. Crumble the remaining dough over the preserves.
9. Bake for another 20-25 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
10. Cool on a wire rack before cutting.
11. When you cut the squares, wipe the knife often to keep it clean so the red from the raspberry preserves won’t get on the shortbread topping.
12. Store the squares in a covered tin on top of the counter.
