Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 2 cups fresh raspberries
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a 9×13-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups of flour and 1/2 cup of powdered sugar. Add the cold, cubed butter and mix until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Press the mixture into the prepared baking pan and bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden.
  4. While the crust is baking, prepare the raspberry lemon filling. In a blender, blend the raspberries until smooth. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve to remove the seeds, and set aside the puree.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together granulated sugar, eggs, lemon juice, lemon zest, 1/4 cup flour, and baking powder until well combined.
  6. Pour the raspberry puree over the baked crust, followed by the lemon mixture.
  7. Bake for an additional 25-30 minutes or until the center is set and the edges are golden.
  8. Allow the bars to cool completely in the pan, then refrigerate for a few hours or overnight to firm up.
  9. Before serving, dust the bars with powdered sugar and cut into squares. Enjoy!
