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. ;)

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.

Made these for a July 4th get together... took a little longer than expected to prepare but will be making these again & again as everyone loved them... would suggest preparing a day ahead and letting sit up in frig... if you're counting calories you can relax and enjoy!
These bars turned out looking beautiful but tasted mediocre, at best. A LOT of work for such disappointing flavor when finished.
I really liked these, as Raspberries are my favorite fruit. The season is too short so I am thinking that I will try with blackberries also.
These bars were fantastic! Everyone that tried them loved them. I've made them twice this week and know it will become my staple go to dessert. I can't wait to try them with other fruit and create my own versions.
