Raspberry Bars

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Raspberries may just be the perfect fruit.  Beautiful to look at, full of texture and bursting with flavor in your mouth.  My favorite way to eat raspberries is either straight off the bush or out of the basket and directly into my mouth.  Due to their very limited shelf life, when I found myself with a half-flat of berries (I couldn’t resist) last weekend, I knew I had better find something to do with at least half of them.

My mind went to a recipe from the Smitten Kitchen website about a year ago and they ave been in the back of my mind ever since.  This seemed like the perefect opportunity to give them a try.

Deb lists them as Breakfast Bars, but I am going to simply call them Fruit Bars, because they are delicious anytime of the day.  I did increase the amount of raspberries just a bit to give a thicker fruit layer.  The only other significant change I made was to mix the streusel with a pastry blender and my fingers since I don’t own a food processor.

Don’t make the same mistake I did and wait a year to give them a try.

    My mom and I make these every single Christmas except use apricot preserves as the filling. I’m definitely going to try these this year, though! The apricot ones are delicious but probably fall in comparison to these and the fresh raspberries 😀
