Raspberry Lemonade Bars

February 16, 2014Teresa

Raspberry Lemonade Bars are fantastic. This recipe uses a lovely lemonade cookie mix crust layer topped with a raspberry jam layer. Then it has a cream cheese layer topped with a streusel topping from the lemonade cookie mix for the grand finish to these amazing cookie bars. Raspberry, lemonade, and the cheesecake layer make these bars absolutely irresistible. This 6-ingredient recipe is not too difficult to make either. I think you’ll enjoy them too.

I’ve told you many times before how I’ve found some of my favorite recipes on the backs of boxes, cans or packages for those marketing their products. This recipe is no exception. Pillsbury has a great lemonade cookie mix now, and on the back is a recipe for these delicious bars.

While I’ve added additional raspberry jam and made a few other minor changes, these luscious bars are quite spectacular and ones you will want to make at your first opportunity! I made them for a friend’s wedding and they were a big hit. The bride loved them!

If you’re looking for a marvelous dessert for holiday baking, a tailgating party, or any kind of special occasion, baby shower, or company, put these tasty bars on the menu. They’re very beautiful and festive for any holiday. They also taste wonderful! 🙂

Spread raspberry jam over top of the hot crust. You will have to use care so you don’t scrape the crumbs from the crust into the jam layer.
