Ingredients:  
2 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1 c. sugar
3/4 c. finely chopped pecans
1 c. (2 sticks) cold butter or margarine (I use butter)
1 egg beaten
1 jar (12.5 oz.) seedless red raspberry jam
1 2/3 c. milk chocolate chips, semi-sweet chocolate chips, raspberry chips or mini kisses milk chocolate baking pieces.

Directions:
Directions:
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees and grease 9x13 baking dish.

2. Mix together flour, sugar, pecans and beaten egg in a large bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or with an electric mixer keeping watch of ingredients until it resembles coarse crumbs. Measure 1 1/2 c. of crumbs and set aside. Press remaining crumb mixture on bottom of the greased prepared pan. (I use the bottom of a flat drinking glass or measuring cup to press the crumbs into an even base for the bars.) Spread jam on top of the pressed crumb layer. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top of the jam. Finish with crumbling the remaining 1 1/2 c. crumb mixture evenly over the top.

3. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars.
