Raspberry Crumb Bars Recipe

raspberry crumb bars

You guys . . . I need to come clean.

For dinner tonight, I fed my family a frozen lasagna.

Not even a lasagna that I had prepared and had ready in the freezer . . .
but a frozen lasagna that I bought at the store.

And you know what? I am totally fine with it. :)
Even food bloggers need a break from cooking everyone now and then!

However, I always can find the willpower to make dessert!
These bars are simple and easy (which are my requirements for a good recipe!) using ingredients you have in your pantry. I am usually a person who prefers chocolate, but these bars are amazing!

Raspberry Crumb Bars
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup shortening
1 egg
dash salt
dash ground cinnamon

Fruit filling:
4 cups fresh raspberries (or frozen- just thaw them first)
1/2 cup sugar
3 teaspoons corn starch
(or you could use a can raspberry pie filling – either one works!)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9×13″ baking pan (I used a glass one) with non-stick cooking spray.
Combine 1 cup of the sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, ground cinnamon, shortening, and egg. Dough will be crumbly. Pat half of the dough into the prepared pan.
Combine the remaining 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch and berries. Spread fruit mixture on top of the dough in the pan. Crumble the remaining dough over the tops of the berries.
Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 35-45 minutes or until the top is slightly brown.

Makes 15-18 bars.

    Hi; do you think apricots might work in this recipe? I have an apricot tree, and I freeze them to use throughout the year; this recipe looks intriguing. And, if it WOULD work, do you think it will taste good?? Thanks so much. (I mean do you think apricots would be a good substitute fruit for this dish lol.)

    I just tried this dessert for the first time over this past weekend…IT WAS AWESOME!! My whole family absolutely loved it and would even prefer it over raspberry pie :) It is super easy to make and I also added 3/4 cup old fashioned oats to the crumb top before I added it over berries, a great addition!! Thanks again for sharing :)
