Are you looking forward to warm weather and easy fruity desserts? While these Sunshine Lemon-Raspberry Bars are delicious any time of the year they remind me of sunshine and warm weather. The white chocolate drizzle ties the lemon juice and raspberry jam flavors together perfectly!
Lemon Raspberry Custard Dessert Bars
The best parts of this dessert are the raspberry jam and white chocolate drizzle. The lemon juice adds a fresh tang that is perfect for spring and summer! We have a couple other desserts with raspberry jam that we crave Raspberry German Crumb Cake Bars.
My mom has had this recipe for years. She has collected farm magazines for decades and adapted recipes as she has time and need for a new dish. She whipped this dessert up and told me that it’s so good I had to add it to my blog. Since mom is always right I hope you enjoy this dessert as much as we do.
Another dessert with raspberry flavors that we love is our Chocolate Gooey Butter Cake with a raspberry sauce!
How to Make Sunshine Lemon-Raspberry Bars

Combine eggs, sugar, lemon juice, more flour and baking powder. Pour this mixture over the hot crust and bake longer until the custard is set and the top is golden.
Melt the jam in a microwave safe bowl and pour over lemon bars. Cool completely.
Melt vanilla baking chips and drizzle over cooled bars. Store in the refrigerator.
