Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x8-inch baking pan.

  • Stir melted butter, white sugar, and light brown sugar together. Stir in flour to form a crumbly mixture. Set 3/4 cup of the mixture aside for the topping. Add raspberry baking chips and salt to the remaining mixture.

  • Pour raspberry crumb mixture into the prepared pan, distributing it evenly. Use the back of a spoon to press the crumb mixture down into the pan to form a level crust. Spread lemon curd over the crust and top with the reserved crumbs.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes. Cool in the pan for 20 minutes, then refrigerate until bars are set, about 1 hour.

  • While the bars are cooling, make the raspberry sauce. Place raspberry preserves in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high until easily stirred with a spoon, about 40 seconds. Stir in raspberry liqueur and refrigerate until cool.

  • Cut bars into 9 pieces and drizzle with raspberry sauce.
