Raspberry Lemonade Squares


I have shared some lemon squares that I have made in the past, which are a family favourite.  Today’s recipe is raspberry lemonade squares, which are equally as good. These pretty pink squares are tart and sweet and were a great Pinterest find. The squares are easy to make and even though they are just like lemon squares, they are a bit extra special. They would be a perfect desert for a brunch or a baby shower. Give them a try next time you are baking!

PS…sorry for two recipe posts in a row. We were without power all day and I couldn’t upload photos for the post I had planned for today.

Crust
  1. 9 tablespoons unsalted butter
  2. 1/4 cup sugar
  3. 1 cup flour
Filling
  1. 1/2 cup sugar
  2. 3 egg whites
  3. 1 egg
  4. 2/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  5. Zest from 2 lemons
  6. 2/3 cup  flour
  7. 1 to 2 cups frozen raspberries, defrosted
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 8×8″ pan with parchment paper.
  2. Cream butter, and sugar with a mixer. Mix in flour. Press dough into baking pan, so that it comes up about a 1/2 inch around the sides.
  3. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until slightly golden brown. Set aside to cool.
  4. Whisk sugar, egg whites, egg, lemon juice and zest, and flour in a bowl. Pour raspberries into a sieve and press through to extract all the pulp and juices. Whisk into lemon mixture and pour into crust.
  5. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until filling is completely set. Let cool completely. Remove from pan.
