Raspberry Crumble Bars

The sweet topping for these raspberry crumble bars is a nutty and crunchy combination of almonds, cornmeal, flour, sugar and butter.

Raspberry Crumble Bars

From magazines to Instagram, all I see lately are pictures of pie.

It seems like just about everybody is celebrating the fruit surplus by making from-scratch dough in hopes of the perfect crust.

While I do like a slice now and then, our family is not big on pie. I only make one if we are going to a gathering with a crowd.

Last weekend I was craving a classic fruity summer dessert.

Pie would have been perfect, but I knew I would end up consuming the bulk of it myself.

I decided to bake raspberry crumble bars with a chewy base and crumbly top thanks to cornmeal.

I even froze most of the bars, so we could enjoy them at our own pace.

Raspberry Crumble Bars

  • Author: Paige Adams
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 35-40 minutes
  • Total Time: 50-55 minutes
  • Yield: 16 bars 1x

Ingredients

3/4 cup almonds

1/2 cup yellow cornmeal

2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted

12 ounces fresh raspberries

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment leaving a 1-inch overhang on 2 sides.

Pulse the almonds into a food processor until finely ground. (You should have about 1 cup.) In a large bowl, combine the ground almonds, cornmeal, flour, sugar and salt. Stir in the butter.

Press two-thirds of the dough into the bottom of the prepared pan to form a crust. Place the raspberries on top in a single layer and sprinkle with the remaining dough.

Bake for 35-40 minutes until the top is golden brown. Cool completely before removing from the pan and cutting into 16 squares.

Store in an airtight container. Bars can be frozen up to 1 month.
