Spread them onto pancakes, waffles, and french toast?

RASPBERRY SQUARES
2 sticks unsalted butter
1 1/2 C. sugar (divided)
2 1/2 C. flour, sifted
1/4 t. salt
2 egg yolks
1 10 oz. jar seedless raspberry jam or jelly
4 egg whites
2 cups finely chopped walnuts

Cream together the butter,yolks, and 1/2 C.sugar.
Add flour and knead with fingers.
Pat dough into a greased 15 1/2 by 10 1/2 by 1 in. Jelly Roll pan.
Bake at 350* 15-20 minutes until lightly browned.
Remove from oven and spread with jam/jelly.
Beat egg whites until stiff.
Fold in remaining 1 C. sugar and nuts.
Gently spread on top of jam/jelly.
Bake for 25 minutes.
Cut into bars while still warm

You could do Linzer Tart or Linzer Cookies.

I also swirl jams into ice cream pie, brownies, cheesecake, plain yogurt and oatmeal.

Spoon some into a bowl, add a bit of flour and powdered sugar until you can roll them into a ball. Place in freezer until firm. Remove and dip them into melted dark chocolate. Remove with a fork to allow excess hcocolate to drip ovv and place on parchment or waxed paper to cool. Now you have raspeberry truffles.

A truly sensational flavor is to spread the raspberry preserves on top of a Three Muskateers bar and consume in little bites. Absolute heaven.

Use in pastries. Spread on top of cheescake. Swirl into softened ice cream and refreeze. Use as an ice-cream topping in a bannana split. Press through a fine mesh seive and add to vinagar and oil to make a raspberry vinagarette salad dressing. Mix with cheery pie filling and use in a pie. Add to cooked oatmaeal or farina. Use in cobbler or fruit crisp. Eat on graham crackers. Add to hot cocoa drink, or milkshake/malt. Add to herbal tea.

Roll out bread dough, and spread over the raw dough. Jelly roll the filling inside and bake.

Hope these ideas will tickle your creative side and spur you on to think of your own great uses for raspberry preserves.

This entire thread has my mouth watering. I enjoy raspberry preserves on anything at all - english muffins, toast, biscuits, pastry, you name it! Oh, and with peanut butter on a sandwich with a glass of milk. I guess you can tell there isn't a recipe I wouldn't enjoy them on.

You could easily use raspberry preserves instead of strawberry to accompany your monte cristo sandwiches.

Hubby and I don't eat much in the way of sweets, period. When I'm given jams, jellies and preserves, though, Ifind uses for them. If all else fails, they make great sugar replacements in soy-based marinades. Just take a teriyaki type recipe, and add spoonfuls of the preserves instead of sugar. Yumm. Also use as a ham glaze.

Add a "dollop" on top of Brie, cream cheese, etc. to add a wonderful counterpoint of flavor as an appetizer.
