Raspberry Streusel Bars

Raspberry Streusel Bars have a buttery pecan shortbread crust and a fruity filling made with raspberry preserves. They are a cinch to make and beyond delicious. Everyone who has tried these easy and simple bars, loves them. Made with very few ingredients, raspberry streusel bars can be whipped up in no time flat. They’re perfect to bring to a party, potluck or any function where a sweet treat is needed.

Any Flavor

Want to change the flavor of these delicious bars? Simply change the preserves used. Strawberry, blueberry, black raspberry, even grape preserves can be used in this recipe. Try lemon or lime curd to give an already delicious bar an unique and different taste. A super simple glaze made of powdered sugar, milk, almond extract and a few drops of food coloring, is mixed together and drizzled over the top. Super simple yet so delicious.

Pecan Crust

If you like pecan sandies or pecan finger cookies you’ll go nuts for these fast, fruity and easy bars. The crust for these bars are reminiscent of pecan sandies or the cookies my grandma made during the holidays for pecan fingers. Light, buttery with crunchy pecans.

Recipe Notes:

Making Crackle Colored Eggs Plus Nests   are a fun “experiment” that your kids and grand-kids will enjoy helping you take part in. Try a new way to decorate eggs this Easter season. For the recipe we used a jar of raspberry preserves from Trader Joe’s. Raspberry Streusel Bars with Powdered Sugar icing are fantastic in any flavor. Change up the flavor by changing the jam used. There are many brands on the grocery store shelves, pick up a jar and make a pan of bars.
