Rasperry Lemon Bars

You all know that I love lemon.  But did you know that I also love raspberries?  They are one of my favorite fruits.  And did you know that lemons and raspberries go great together?  Well, I’m here to tell you that they do!

Which is why I absolutely love these Raspberry Lemon Bars.

Don’t those look absolutely delightful?  And you’ll never guess how easy they are to make.  Only 4 ingredients.  No lie.

When it comes to making treats, I tend to gravitate towards recipes that 1) don’t take a lot of time to make, and 2) make enough for a crowd.  And of course the obvious, it has to taste amazing.  This recipe definitely meets all three criteria.

My family loved these bars and so did my friends.  Everyone was asking for the recipe, and my answer to that is always, “It’ll be on the blog soon!”

So, as promised, here it is.
