Raspberry Lemonies

Raspberry Lemonies are lemon and raspberry perfection in the form of a tart yet sweet bar. Raspberry Lemonies www.confessionsofabakingqueen.com   My little sister, Lydia, has left for England for 8 months. Well, she we will be traveling for a bit around Europe as well. She has planned this for a long time but I can’t believe she finally left. Thank goodness!!! LOL only joking. I miss my little baby so much. She started making lemonies all the time before she left and I was obsessed. I could not get enough. Lemon is such a fabulous flavor.  Raspberry Lemonies www.confessionsofabakingqueen.com Nothing trumps a lemon glaze. Ugh, nothing! Except when you add raspberries. I did that a few weeks ago with a delicious Raspberry Lemon Loaf Cake . We devoured that like nobodys’ business and we did the same with these.  Lemon and raspberry really do compliment each other well. Raspberry Lemonies www.confessionsofabakingqueen.com These bars are simple to whip up, bake for a short amount of time and then you drench them in a lemon glaze. Top them with fresh raspberries, I die. I really enjoy these bars chilled. But you can tots eat them at room temp.
