Raspberry Lemonies are lemon and raspberry perfection in the form of a tart yet sweet bar.
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.
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.
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.
