I love a great dessert…especially one that has raspberries in it. These Raspberry Pie Bars are so good and so easy to make. Your whole family will enjoy them.
If you are not a fan of raspberries you can easily sub out the raspberries for your favorite fruit. These would be just as tasty with blueberries, strawberries, blackberries or even cherries!
The raspberries give this sweet treat just the right amount of tartness for the perfect combination! They are great for sharing or serving up at your next get together with friends and family. To make them even sweeter, top them off with a little bit of fresh whipping cream and a raspberry on top!
Go ahead and give them a try! I think you will love them as much as we do!
