Raspberry Bliss Bars

My mom made these. I have seen them on the internet a few places. They are wonderful! Cut them small as they are rich.

Raspberry Bliss Bars

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
2 cups (12-oz package) white chocolate chips
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 cup raspberry jam
1/4 cup sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a 9-inch square pan. Melt butter in a 2-cup measuring cup. Add 1 cup white chocolate chips and let stand for 5 minutes. DO NOT STIR! Beat eggs in large bowl until foamy. Add sugar; beat until it is a light lemon color (about 5 minutes). Stir butter mixture into the sugar mixture. Add flour, salt, and almond extract; mix on low speed until combined. Spread 2/3 of batter into prepared pan.

Bake for 15-17 minutes or until light golden brown around the edges. Heat jam for 30 seconds in the microwave; stir. Spread jam over warm crust. Stir remaining white chocolate chips into remaining batter. Drop spoonfuls of batter over jam. Sprinkle with almonds. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Let cool completely before serving.
