Tart raspberry filling is swirled into a low-fat cream filling in these beautiful bars. They're a festive treat for a summer picnic or party.

I wish recipes listed the number of pans/dishes/appliances involved, along with the ingredients. Let's just say I don't like doing dishes, and this recipe required 2 uses of the food processor (with cleaning in between), the electric mixer, a saucepan, 3 bowls and a baking dish. That's simply too much. It was tasty, but not worth the effort required in creation or cleaning up.

I always read a recipe

I always read a recipe thoroughly before attempting it , both to make sure I have the necessary ingredients and to assess timing/ labor involved. If you have even a little experience in the kitchen, you should be able to assess the difficulty level of the recipe ( and the number of dishes you will dirty) by reading it carefully - several times, if necessary. I do not feel there are any surprises involved here.

Seriously, don't you read

Seriously, don't you read through a recipe beforehand to know this? You need someone else to spoon feed you that information? That is your problem, not EatingWell's.

Really??? It shouldn't take much effort on your part to determine how many dirty dishes a recipe will create. The simple solution is for you to read ahead and avoid those recipes!

Maybe I did something incorrectly, but I found these to be a lot of work for very little pay off. Mine did not come out as thick as the picture and the cream cheese mixture was sparse and lumpy, even though I spent a good time getting it as smooth as possible. Maybe I will try again, but I wasn't terribly impressed.

I made these for 4th of July and they went over famously! I can't believe how fresh and vibrant they taste, and how deceptively decadent they are! The only reason I don't give them 5 stars is they are a bit tedious to make, requiring a lot of time and careful reading of the instructions, which will prevent them from ending up in common rotation at our house. But they are fabulous for the season, and I made them exactly as written. Next time I shall try using strawberries and topping with blueberries. ;)
