  • 3 In medium bowl, mix peach preserves and lemon juice until well blended. Gently stir in raspberries. Spoon and spread mixture evenly over partially baked crust. Sprinkle reserved cookie mixture over filling.
  • 5 Cut into 4 rows by 4 rows. Cover and refrigerate any remaining bars.

  • The secret for cutting bars easily is to line pan with heavy-duty or nonstick foil. When it is time to cut bars, just lift baked bar with foil out of pan, and cut. This also makes cleanup extra easy.
