How to Make Lemon Raspberry Bars
These raspberry lemon bars are just as easy as they are delicious! They are made in two parts: first the crust, then the filling.
How to make the crust:
- Preheat the oven to 350°F, then line your baking pan with aluminium foil or parchment slings.
- Combine all-purpose flour, softened butter, confectioner’s sugar, and salt into a food processor, and pulse until all ingredients are well combined and form a crumbly mixture.
- Spread the crust dough into the bottom of the prepared baking pan, and bring it about 1/2 inch up around the sides to create a slight rim.
- Bake the crust 15-20 minutes at 350°F.
- While the crust is baking, start making the filling.
How to make the filling:
- Puree the raspberries and lemon juice in a blender or food processor.
- Place a wire sieve over a mixing bowl, and pour the raspberry mixture through it. Use a rubber spatula to press the raspberry juice through the sieve, so that only the seeds are left in the sieve.
- Throw away the seeds and pour the juice back into the food processor.
- Now add the lemon zest, eggs, egg whites, sugar, flour, and salt into the food processor, and puree for about 30 seconds.
- By now, the crust should be done baking. You can remove it from the oven and place it on the counter top.
To finish the raspberry bars:
- Pour the filling into the cooked crust in an even layer.
- Bake at 350°F for 30-35 minutes. You want the filling to set so that it doesn’t jiggle when shaken, but you don’t want to overcook it.
- When done baking, place the baking pan on a cooling rack. Let the bars cool completely in the pan before serving.
To serve, cut them into 16 squares (or whatever size you want them). Sprinkle with powdered sugar, add a dollop of whipped cream, and add some fresh raspberries, lemon, or mint.

Hi, these look amazing!! Would I be able to still make these if I don’t have a food processor? Would a blender or stand mixer work at all? Thanks!
I absolutely love your gluten free lemon bars recipe. It is the only gluten version I have ever tried that actually worked, and they are so, so good. Now I really want to try these lemon raspberry bars. Do you have any suggestions for adapting to gluten free? Thanks!
Hi! I know you could use the same 1:1 gluten free flour, that’s a good first step! I haven’t fully researched but that should get you close.
AMAZING! Not too tart, not too sweet. Perfection. I loved that the recipe was easy to make and perfect to bring to pot lucks and parties. I’ll definitely be making this again and again.
So refreshing and beautiful ….. perfect timing at our side of the world to make these beauties too …
