Raspberry Shortbread Crumble Bars

Hello everyone! Raspberry Shortbread Crumble Bars for you today. A buttery shortbread base with a layer of sweet homemade raspberry jam and topped with some crunchy shortbread goodness. Soooo moreish!!

Feel free to change up the fruit with something else if you like, blueberries or strawberries would work lovely too! I have added a touch of cinnamon to the shortbread dough but if its not your cup of tea you can leave it out. Make sure you let these bars cool 100% before cutting into them, this will give you a nice and clean cut.
