lemons and raspberries

my absolute favourite dessert? lemon bars.

no chocolate. i know. but i love them. so much that i actually wrote an assignment on them for my french class.

i’m moving in a week and a half (cannot wait!) and am thus trying to get rid of the stored up food i have so i don’t have to move it all. this includes way too many frozen raspberries. to significantly diminish this, i added raspberries to lemon bars. it worked surprisingly well

i also had frozen crusts so i used those rather than making a shortbread crust (which would’ve required me to buy more butter), so they ended up being more pie than bars. but still delicious

i am completely in love with the colour : )

lemon-raspberry pie/bars adapted from here

pastry crust
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 egg whites
1 whole egg
2/3 cup lemon juice (2-3 lemons)
2 tablespoons lemon zest (1-2 lemons)
2/3 cup flour
pinch of salt
2 cups raspberries, blended (if frozen, defrost first)

whisk sugar, egg whites, egg, lemon juice and zest, flour and salt in a large bowl until well mixed. add raspberries and mix. roll out pastry crust in an 8×8 or 9×9 greased pan. pour in filling. bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until the filling is set.
