would regular sweetened condensed milk work?
Regular sweetened condensed milk would work great for these bars. I was trying to save a little extra sugar and fat intake, but regular would definitely work.
You will still use the same amount as directed in the instructions.
what to do if using frozen raspberries:
For this recipe, we prefer to use fresh raspberries. They have a sweeter taste, and less extra juice, that will bleed onto the bars.
However if you do use frozen raspberries, here is what we recommend:
- Thaw your raspberries.
- Lightly rinse them off in water.
- Drain the excess water using a strainer.
- Lay them out on paper towels and pat them dry with another paper towel.
- Let them dry for a little longer (about 30 minutes) then use them as directed in the recipe.
This will help the raspberries from not bleeding so much when you mix them into the batter. If they are still a little juicy, your lemon bars will be a little more pink than white and yellow, with bits of raspberry.
what other fruits would taste good in these?
We prefer to use raspberries in these, but here are a few other favorites:
You could really add any of your favorite fruits, but we have found that the berries are the sweetest and work best.
