Ingredients

The Filling:

  • 3 1/4 cups fresh raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 - 1/3 cup granulated sugar depends on the sweetness of the berries
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch

The Base and Topping:

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 11 tablespoons cold unsalted butter cut into small pieces
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 2/3 cup sliced almonds roughly chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 8x8-inch baking pan with cooking spray.

The Filling:

  • In a large bowl, combine the raspberries, lemon juice, sugar and cornstarch. Set aside.
  • The base and topping:
  • In a medium-sized bowl, combine granulated and brown sugars. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt, and ground ginger.
  • Cut in cold butter pieces with a pastry cutter or a fork until the mixture is crumbly. Stir a lightly beaten egg and sliced almonds into the flour mixture.
  • Press half of the flour mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread the raspberry mixture over the crust. Sprinkle the rest of the flour mixture over the raspberries.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until the top is light brown. Left the bars cool on a rack and then place in the fridge to chill. This will make the bars easier to cut and remove from the pan. Cut into squares and serve.
