These raspberry crumble bars have a delicious shortbread base, a layer of juicy raspberries, and crunchy crumble topping. Delicious with ice cream, or a drizzle of sweet vanilla glaze.
How do you Store Fresh Raspberries?
Discard any bruised or moldy raspberries before refrigerating.
To extend the shelf life of raspberries, do not wash the berries until ready to eat or use.
How long do raspberries last in the refrigerator?
Properly stored, raspberries will usually keep for about 2 to 3 days in the fridge.
I absolutely love fruit crisps and crumbles. The combination of juicy berries and buttery, crunchy crumble makes for the perfect dessert.
Especially in the spring and summer when fresh berries come into season. The berries add such a beautiful pop of color, and a delicious crumble always feels homey & rustic in the most perfect way.
So if you love crisps and crumbles like I do, these raspberry crumble bars are for you. They have a shortbread-type base, a layer of juicy raspberries, and crumble topping. They’re delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, left plain, or with a drizzle of vanilla glaze.
And they’re also perfectly easy to make.
To get started whisk together some flour and sugar with a pinch of salt and a little baking powder. Then melted butter and 1 egg yolk are stirred in. The mixture doubles as the base and the crumble topping – so there’s less mess and recipe steps.
About 1 cup of the mixture is reserved for the crumble topping, and the remaining mixture is gets pressed into the bottom of the prepared pan.
For the raspberry filling, we’re using raspberry preserves mixed with fresh berries. The level of sweetness will depend on the raspberry preserve that you choose, so it’s up to you and what you prefer.
Then we’re adding a little extra sugar, flour & cinnamon to the reserved crumble mixture to make the crumble topping extra crunchy. It will be the consistency of wet sand and when you form a fist around it, it’ll form big crumbles.
The crumble topping gets sprinkled on top of the raspberry layer, and our bars are ready to bake.
I especially loved that these raspberry crumble bars are much easier to transport than your traditional crisp or crumble – so they’re perfect to bring to a potluck or a friend’s house. The juicy raspberries and buttery crumble are such a delicious combination, and you can’t go wrong with an easy bar recipe!
