Talk about deliciousness! These raspberry bars are seriously so amazing. And easy. Like really easy. I love to make the shortbread crust one evening and then just allow it to cool overnight and then the next morning add the raspberry jam and the almond crumble topping. That way, I am ready to serve warm raspberry bars for breakfast or brunch! Of course, it is just as delicious cool!

I topped these raspberry bars with an almond crumble since I think raspberries and almonds are absolutely perfect together. Of course, pecans or walnuts would also be scrumptious or you could just omit the nuts completely if you prefer.

    Yes…these are the best! My friends could not stop eating them. I doubled the topping and used chopped walnuts instead of almonds. Delic! I also cut the bars on diagonal/diamond shapes and they looked sooo pretty that way and comments on that also. My slogan is “I Nellied it up”. Thanks Robyn for your great tried and true recipes.

    This sounds delicious! Just a quick question… I didn’t see a pan size. Are you using a 9×13 inch for these bars?

    I took these to my bible study and everyone raved about how good they were. I’ll definitely make these again!

    Wish I had some right now. I have just recently developed a love for raspberries! I’ve always had a love for almonds so this is sounding good to me! You know I’m pinning this and I shared to facebook.
