How to make raspberry almond bars:
First off, make the crust. There is nothing difficult about it. In fact, it’s so easy you can make it with your kids. All you need is flour, butter and sugar. Combine all-purpose flour with melted butter and powdered sugar. No beating is required. Simply mix until combined. You are after soft and sticky dough.
I used my brownie pan which is 7.5-inch wide. If you have an 8-inch pan use it. Make sure to either grease the pan properly or line it with a baking parchment paper first. If you have done this, spread the crust dough around and using your hand press it down to fill the pan.
Pierce the crust several times to prevent air bubbles from forming. We want nice even surface. Well, as even as possible. It will need about 20 minutes in the oven.
Meanwhile: Whisk the eggs with sugar until well combined. This will only take a few seconds. Add raspberries and yogurt. Mix again. At last, add corn starch and ground almonds. You will pour this mixture over the baked crust and put it back in the oven.
Good to know before making raspberry almond bars:
- This recipe can easily be doubled.
- These almond raspberry bars can be eaten warm or cooled down.
- The texture of the raspberry layer will change slightly from gooey-ish/soft (when warm) to stiff (when cooled down and served on the following day).
