Jam Almond Crumble Bars

This recipe is our rendition of the Raspberry Bars from Tates Bake Shop in New York. A buttery streusel is made and pressed into a 9x13-inch dish, then topped with jam (we used a cominbation of strawberry and fig preserves and love the Loveless Fig Preserves) then sprinkled with the remaining streusel. If you like shortbread, you'll love these buttery bars.
