Raspberry-Filled White Chocolate Bars

1/2 cup Butter
1 12-ounce pkg. White Chocolate Baking Bars, chopped
2 Eggs
1/2 cup Sugar
1 cup All-Purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Amaretto or Almond Extract
1/2 cup Raspberry Spreadable Fruit or Jam
1/4 cup Sliced Almonds, toasted

1. Heat oven to 325F. Grease and flour 9-inch square baking dish. Melt butter in small saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat. Add 1 cup of the white chocolate (6 oz.). LET STAND. DO NOT STIR.

2. In large bowl, beat eggs until frothy. Gradually add sugar, beating at high speed until lemon colored. Stir in white chocolate chip mixture. Add flour, salt and almond extract; mix at low speed just until combined. Spread half of batter (about 1 cup) in greased and floured pan. Set aside remaining batter.

3. Bake at 325F. for 15 to 20 minutes or until light golden brown.

4. Stir remaining 1 cup white chocolate into remaining half of batter; set aside. Melt spreadable fruit in small saucepan over low heat. Spread evenly over warm, partially baked crust. Gently spoon teaspoonfuls of remaining batter over spreadable fruit. (Some fruit may show through batter.) Sprinkle with almonds.

5. Bake at 325F. for an additional 25 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 1 hour or until completely cooled. Cut into bars.
