Raspberry Bars

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup margarine

Press half of mix (2 cups) into bottoms of two 8 x 8 x 2 inch baking pans. Bake 20 minutes. Remove from oven and spread each with 1/2 cup jam. Return to oven and bake 15 minutes longer. Let cool on wire rack. Cut into 2 x 1 inch rectangles.
