Allow Unsalted Butter (1 cup) to come to room temperature. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Line a 9 x 9 baking dish with parchment paper.
Combine butter and Granulated Sugar (3/4 cup) in a mixing bowl and beat until combined. Then beat in Vanilla Extract (1 teaspoon).
In a separate bowl, whisk together All-Purpose Flour (2 1/3 cup) and Salt (1/2 teaspoon). With mixer on low, slowly add flour mixture to butter mixture. Mix until the dough starts to form into a ball.
Press ⅔ of the dough into the bottom of the baking pan and about ¼ inch up the sides of the pan.
Spread the Raspberry Jam (12 ounce) over the crust, leaving about a ¼ inch border.
Mix the Dried Fruits (2/3 cup) with the remaining dough. Sprinkle mixture evenly over the jam. Scatter Sliced Almonds (1/4 cup) over crumb topping. Bake in oven for about 45 - 50 minutes until the top begins to turn golden brown.
Cool completely before cutting and serving.
