I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.

When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.

*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

Raspberry Cream Cheese Bars (Jill Tew)

These are divine! I could eat a whole pan, ...but really shouldn't!

1 c butter, softened

1 c granulated sugar
2 c all-purpose flour

1 c rolled oats
12 oz cream cheese
 (don't decrease this)
3/4 c sweetened condensed milk (not the entire can)
2/3 c raspberry jam, softened


Cream butter and sugar in mixer until well combined. Add flour and oatmeal and mix gently to make a crumbly dough. Pat 2/3 of dough into buttered 9x13 dish. Set aside 1/3 dough for topping. Combine cream cheese and sweetened, condensed milk in mixer and beat until smooth, this will be a fairly thick mixture.

Drop cream cheese mixture onto crust and spread. Soften jam until pourable and spread over cream cheese mixture. Crumble remaining dough onto top of raspberry preserves. Bake at 350° for 40-45 min, or until crust is lightly browned. When cool, cut into bars (or shapes) and serve.
