Today I made Raspberry-Lemon bars. They were very good, and a big hit!
Here's the recipe I revised from King Arthur Flour:

For the Crust-
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup all=purpose white flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour (regular flour will do just fine if you don't have it on hand)
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
Zest of 1 lemon

2 large eggs
1 cup granulated white sugar
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
2 tbsp all-purpose white flour
Zest of 1 lemon
a pinch of salt

Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, combine flour and confectioners sugar. Using a pastry cutter, cut in the butter (I cut my stick of butter into thirds to make it easier).
Press this mixture into a 9x9 baking pan and bake for 20 minutes, or until lightly brown.
While that is baking, combine the eggs, sugar, flour, and salt. Using a blender or food processor, mash up your raspberries with the lemon juice, and add to the rest of the other ingredients.
Once the crust part is finished and still hot, pour the topping over it and continue baking for about 25 minutes.
Let cool (you can even put it in the fridge) , then sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.
