Raspberry Crumb Bars Recipe

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!

  • 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


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Spray a 9x13" baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Combine sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, ground cinnamon, shortening, and egg. Dough will be crumbly. Pat half of the dough into the prepared pan.
  4. 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.
  5. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until the top is slightly brown.


*or you could use a can raspberry pie filling - either one works!

    There have been nights when my dinner was tater tots. Not tater tots and ... JUST tater tots. These bars look amazing. Raspberry is my very favorite fruit. ~Cheryl http://snaps-of-ginger.blogspot.com/2014/02/diy-valentine-garland.html
  2. 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 :)
