A super easy recipe for sweet and tart raspberry lemon crumble bars!
Juicy raspberries are so perfect in the middle of Summer! They’re in their peak
time right now so I’ve been stocking up on tons of them. I don’t particularly like them just to eat because the seeds throw me off, BUT – I love, love, loveeee to bake with them! They have a tart but sweet flavor that I love so much.
These raspberry crumble bars are so super simple to make and so delicious. Whenever I have a bunch of berries I need to use up, I almost always will make this recipe because it’s so simple and comes out amazing every time no matter what berry you use! If you don’t like raspberries or don’t have them on hand, no problem! You can substitute your favorite berry in it’s place.
To prepare this dessert, you’ll let the raspberries sit in a bowl with some sugar and lemon juice to macerate a bit and get them nice and sweet. The “crust” will bake for a few minutes and then the raspberries will get dumped on top. The crumble is then sprinkled on top of them and they bake up nice and golden brown. The raspberries get nice and gooey on the inside, so it’s best to allow the bars to cool completely to room temperature before cutting into them to prevent them from oozing. The buttery sweet crumble on top is my favorite part!
