    Units: US | Metric

    • 3 sheets wax paper
    • 1 (8 ounce) jar raspberry preserves
    • 6 eggs
    • 1 1/2 cups butter (DO NOT use margarine)
    • 4 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
    • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
    • 10 drops red food coloring
    • 10 drops green food coloring
    • 1 1/2 cups sugar


    1. 1
      Beat eggs, add melted butter, almond extract, sugar, and flour. (Let the melted butter cool a bit before adding it to the beaten eggs).
    2. 2
      In 3 bowls, evenly divide batter. Leave 1 bowl white, 1 bowl red, and 1 bowl green.
    3. 3
      Place each batter in a very shallow pan-seperately.(I use aluminum pans from Waldbaums. They are the size of a loaf, but not as deep. They come in a package of 3-which is what you need). Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes- approximately.
    4. 4
      Put red layer on top of wax paper. Spread raspberry preserves on layer. Take white layer, place on top of the red layer and spread preserves. Take the green layer, place it on the white. Spread the melted chocolate chips on the top.
    5. 5
      Place in the freezer, just long enough for the chocolate to harden. When hardend, take out and do the same on the other side.
    6. 6
      Take out carefully and slice into bars. Whole pieces can be frozen and sliced when needed.
    7. 7
    8. 8
      While the 1st side of the bar is hardening, you can start the whole process over because you will have enough batter and melted chips for a 2nd bar of cookies. ALSO Add some oil to melting chocolate chips to keep it from clumping together (if needed).

      I have made a couple of times now! Excellent Recipe-- the only thing I do differently is add a little veg. oil to the chocalate chips and they cut a lot easier.

      I must have used the wrong size pans, because my cookies were too thick, but the they tasted very good. I will use less batter next time, but other than that, wouldn't change a thing. I'm not sure why 3 sheets of wax paper are needed - I only needed 1. I also greased and floured the pans - I was afraid the cake would stick.
