Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • Jams, jellies and preserves are easier to spread if you stir them vigorously first.
  • For party-pretty bars, sprinkle powdered sugar over a paper doily to give the top a lacy look and let the raspberry layer show through.
  • Sprinkle powdered sugar over lemon bars just before serving.
