Chocolate Raspberry Bars

A little sweet and a little tart. Yum!

Chocolate Raspberry Bars
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup cold butter or margarine
1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 Tbsp milk
1 cup vanilla or white chips, melted
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 Tbsp shortening

In a bowl, combine the flour and sugar; cut in butter until crumbly. Press into an ungreased 9-inch square pan. Bake at 375° for 15-18 minutes or until browned. Spread jam over warm crust. In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and milk until smooth. Add vanilla chips; beat until smooth. Spread carefully over jam layers. Cool completely. Chill until set, about 1 hour.
For Glaze, melt chocolate chips and shortening; spread over filling. Chill for 10 minutes. Cut into bars; chill another hour before serving.
