Raspberry Lemonade Bars!

Summer is HERE! With it all sort of wonderful berry opportunities.  I think my favorite desserts (besides donuts) are anything with fruit in the summer! Add some fresh whipped cream and you cannot beat it! 

Here's a favorite recipe that bears repeating! I bet this can be made with blueberries or blackberries...be right back...

raspberry lemonade bars

for the crust:
9 tablespoons butter (I always use salted)
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup flour

for the filling:
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 egg whites
1 egg
2/3 cup lemon juice
zest from one lemon
2/3 cup flour
2 cups of frozen raspberries, defrosted
cool whip or freshly made whipped cream

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 8×8 square baking pan with parchment paper.

2. Cream butter, sugar, and salt with an electric mixer. Mix in flour until just incorporated.Press dough into the bottom of the pan.
3. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until slightly golden brown.

For the filling:
1. Whisk sugar, egg whites, egg, lemon juice and zest, flour, and salt in a large bowl.
2. Pour raspberries into a sieve and press through to extract all the pulp and juices.
3. Whisk into lemon mixture and pour into crust.
4. Bake for 30-35 minutes until filling is completely set.  Let cool completely.  Cut into small squares. Top with cool whip or freshly made whipped cream!

Say hello to all things summer!
