    1. Preheat the oven to 170 C / Gas 3. Grease a 23cm square baking tin. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Remove from heat and add 150g white chocolate chips, but do not stir.
    2. In a large bowl, beat eggs until foamy. Gradually mix in the sugar. Stir together the softened chips and butter, and blend into the egg mixture along with the almond extract. Combine the flour and salt; stir into the mixture until just mixed. Spread just half of the mixture into the prepared tin.
    3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown. In a small saucepan, over low heat, warm the jam to make it more liquid. Spread the jam over the warm base. Stir the remaining 150g white chocolate chips into the remaining mixture, then drop the rest of the mixture by teaspoonfuls over the jam. Sprinkle with almonds.
    4. Bake for an additional 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cool in tin on a wire rack before cutting into slices.

    Wow - this recipe deserves more than five stars. It's amazing - rich and decadent. I doubled the recipe and baked it in a 10 x 15 jelly roll pan. Next time I think I'll use a 9 x 13 pan and get a thicker bar. I did use more raspberry preserves than the recipe called for, and added about 1 cup of flaked coconut to the preserves. Next time I make them, and there will most definitely be a next time, I will spread the preserves to about 1/4 inch from the edge of the bottom crust. I spread them all the way to the edge this time, and it made getting them from the pan a little tricky. For such amazing flavor and texture, this recipe was amazingly quick and easy. Thank you for sharing it!  -  21 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I went to a catered party and they served these almond bars that everyone was raving about. I came home and searched by ingredient on the site and found this recipe. This is it!! These bars are so delicious and easy to make. They are elegant - very pretty with the ribbon of jam in the middle. Nice for a simple snack or for a more formal occasion. Connie, thank you so much!!  -  13 Jun 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
