Raspberry Lemon Bars #MadeWithLove

On Saturday I thought it would be a good idea to do some baking and cooking and family time and  Christmas preparation. I may have been a little over enthusiastic. I’ve never been much of a baker but the holidays bring out my baking side and sometimes things turn out pretty good. I managed to make a chocolate pie, pizza, okra gumbo and lemon bars all with the “sporadic” help of my 5 year old. I think the lemon bars are my favorite, because they are more than just standard lemon bars… they have raspberries.

I have been craving raspberries and wanted to make something tart and yummy with Driscoll’s Berries so I came up with Raspberry Lemon Bars. They are essentially lemon bars with fresh raspberries baked into them. These bars are fresh, tart, tangy, smooth and I just can’t get enough of them.

Raspberry Lemon Bars


  • 1.5 Cups of Graham Cracker Crumbs
  • 6 TBLS Melted Butter (salted)
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Large Egg Yolks
  • 14 oz. can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1/2 Cup Lemon Juice
  • 6 oz. Fresh Raspberries


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a medium bowl combine graham cracker crumbs, butter and sugar until moist.
  3. Press graham cracker crumbs evenly along the bottom of a 8×8 baking dish (sprayed or lined with parchment paper)
  4. Bake for 10 minutes
  5. The let crust cool completely.
  6. After crust has cooled completely in a medium bowl mix together the 2 egg yolks and sweetened condensed milk.
  7. Add the lemon juice and mix until it starts to thicken.
  8. Fold in raspberries
  9. Pour lemon/raspberry mixture atop the graham cracker crumb crust.
  10. Bake for 15 minutes
  11. Cool completely and refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving.

I’m normally a chocolate dessert kind of gal but if I can’t get chocolate I will choose a tangy dessert over something super sweet… something like raspberry lemon bars.

I received the feature product from Driscoll’s Berries to create the featured recipe but all opinions are 100% mine.

    That looks so yummy. I remember having raspberries as a kid. My dad would pick them from our little plant and was so proud of the 6-8 that he would pick :) It looks delicious!

    These bars look amazing. I love treats with a little fruity taste. My girls would love them. I will have to give this recipe a try soon. Raspberry and lemon are two of my favorites.

    YUMMY I love baking however I am not good at it. I am always so happy when I see other people baking and sharing their recipes with the pictures. IT makes it so much easier on me to follow since I know what the end product is supposed to look like.
