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.

These bars are INCREDIBLE!

These bars are one of the best receipes I've ever found. Not only are they delicious and very refreshing, but they aren't expencive to make. Almost all of the ingredients are ones you have in your house and the ones you need to buy (like the raspberries and walnuts) are not expencive to buy. I would reccomend this to everyone! All of my friends love these and I tell everyone about them. A must try!

To the person complaining about the pans and bowls - yes they do use a few more pans then a normal cookie receipe, but if you don't like using a few extra bowls when you cook stick to things in the grocery store like the tubes of cookie dough. If you clean as you go it doesn't make a mess at all and the end result is very much worth it!

Refreshing, delicious, healthy, cheap

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.
