Ingredients

Raspberry Crust: 

Lemon Filling:

Directions

  1. Confectioners' sugar and raspberry compote for serving 
  2. For the raspberry crust: Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9x12-inch baking dish. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the flour, confectioners' sugar, raspberry powder, lemon zest, salt and cold butter cubes. Pulse several times until a ball starts to form. Place the dough in the buttered dish and press down firmly to form an even bottom crust. Bake until the crust is golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool slightly. Set aside. 
  3. For the lemon filling: In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, granulated sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Sift the flour and baking powder together and add to the eggs. Mix well. Pour the lemon filling over the crust. Scatter the fresh raspberries over the filling. Return to the oven and bake until the filling is set when the pan is jiggled, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely before cutting into squares. 
  4. Dust with confectioners' sugar and serve with a raspberry compote. The bars will keep for 4 to 5 days in the refrigerator. Try freezing the bars with wooden popsicle sticks inserted in them for a cooling summertime treat!
