Raspberry Crumb Bars
"The fun thing about these Raspberry Crumb Bars is that the fruit layer is all fruit. The berries bake down and almost look like jam...but it's just a layer of berries. And you could totally do this with blueberries or blackberries or a mix of all berries. Have fun with it! The other fun thing is the crumb topping. Holy yum, Batman! This crumb topping is a shortcake base that gets crumbled on top of the fresh berries. Actually, the crumb topping is the same as the crust...you just save some of the crust to crumble on top. Nice and easy!"

Type of DishDessert
- 8 ounces Unsalted butter, melted
- 3 cups All-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon Baking powder
- 1 cup Granulated sugar, divided
- 1 cup Brown sugar
- 2 Large eggs, beaten
- 1 teaspoon Almond extract
- 1 tablespoon Lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon Cornstarch
- 4 cups Raspberries (fresh or frozen)
Preheat oven to 375F. Lightly grease a 9x13 baking pan.
Using a medium bowl, add melted butter, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, 1/2 cup of sugar and all of brown sugar; stir until well combined. Add beaten eggs and almond extract; stir until well combined. Remove 1 cups of this mixture and set aside. Press remaining mixture into prepared baking pan.
In a separate bowl, stir together the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar, lemon juice and cornstarch. Add raspberries and gently stir until well combined. Spread raspberry mixture evenly into baking pan.
Crumble the remaining crust mixture evenly on top of raspberry layer. (Tip: Its ok to leave some of the crust in larger chunks here!)
Bake for 44-46 minutes, or until crumb topping is light golden brown. Let pan cool completely before slicing into bars. (Tip: The bars will be easier to slice if you refrigerate them first.)

This is the time when I wished we lived futuristic and had food replicators. This simple dessert looks so sinfully delicious I would love to try it now. Raspberries are one of those fruits that do no get a lot of action. However, this recipe will take it front and center.

This recipe puts me in the mind of a gourmet pop tart. Do not take it wrong, because I love Poptarts and this sounds like pop tarts on the next level. I like the idea of mixing different berries to make the bar. I plan on picking up some berries on my next grocery run.
