Lemon Raspberry Bars

If you're looking for a light, lemony bar,
with just a hint of raspberry jam then
these bars will surely tantalize your taste buds.
Biting into a Lemon Raspberry Bar,
is like biting into a piece of springtime.
Sunny and a breathe of fresh-air.

Lemon Raspberry Bars have a shortbread crust,
are made with a purchased lemon curd and
a swirl of your favorite seedless raspberry jam.
These delicious bars are a cinch to make and
they will disappear fast...

To save time, we used a purchased jarred lemon curd.
 You can certainly make your own lemon curd
and use that in place of the purchased lemon curd.
