Raspberry-Walnut Shortbread Bars

This is a recipe from Diamond Walnuts.

Shortbread Base (recipe follows)
1/3 cup raspberry jam
2 eggs
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup chopped walnuts

Shortbread Base

Combine 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour and 1/2 cup granulated sugar. Cut in 1/2 cup butter or margarine until mixture is like fine meal.

Prepare Shortbread Base. Press into bottom of lightly greased 9" square baking pan to make an even layer. Bake at 350 deg. for 20 minutes or just until edges become lightly golden. Remove from oven and spread raspberry jam over the shortbread. Beat eggs with brown sugar and vanilla until well blended. Stir in flour mixed with salt and soda. Add walnuts. Spoon over jam and spread lightly to corners of pan. Return to oven and bake 20 to 25 minutes longer or until top is set. Cool in pan, then cut into bars. Makes 24 bars.
