Ingredients

    Crust
  • 1 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter, cut into pieces

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • powdered sugar, for dusting

Instructions

  1. Place a piece of parchment paper in an 8 x 8 baking dish and set aside. Let it hang over the sides so you can remove the bars to cut. Alternately you can also spray with cooking spray.
  2. Crust
  3. Combine the flour, confectionery sugar, walnut and salt in a food processor. Pulse several times to combine. Add the water, oil and butter. Pulse until combined and the mixture is coarse crumbs. Remove and dump into prepared pan. Press down the mixture to form the crust. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 18 - 20 minutes.
  4. Filling
  5. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, lemon juice, lemon zest and eggs; whisk until thoroughly incorporated and smooth.
  6. When the crust comes out of the oven pour the filling on top of the crust. Place raspberries over the top.
  7. Bake for 22 to 25 minutes, or until topping is set.
  8. Cool completely before cutting into pieces. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar if desired before serving.
