Raspberry Squares That Will Be The Life Of The Party!

These Raspberry Squares could hardly be easier.  Buttery and tangy, bite-sized to pop into your mouth, easy to take to a party or gathering, hard to resist! 

Plus, they can be made up to a week ahead or a month, if stored frozen or refrigerated.


  • ¾ C Butter softened
  • ½ C Sugar or ⅔ C Coconut Sugar
  • ¼ tsp Almond extract (trust me!)
  • 1 ¾ C Flour of choice
  • ¼ tsp. Salt
  • ½ C Pecans finely chopped
  • 1 – 8 oz jar of Raspberry Preserves
  • ½ C. Coconut (optional)

How To Make

Mix the butter, sugar, and almond extract up together until combined using a spoon or fork. 

Add Flour, Salt, and Pecans. Mix together until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  

Reserve 1 cup of your crumb mixture for the top.

Press the remaining crumb mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 13” x 9” x 2” baking pan.

Spread the Raspberry Preserves evenly over the crust, careful to disturb the crust as little as possible.  A bit will come up, that’s ok, just do your best here. 

Sprinkle with the remaining reserved crumbs and 

Bake the Raspberry Bars at 350* for 25-30 minutes, until the top is lightly golden brown.  

Cool for 15 min. Then cut into bars of the desired size! 

Store in an airtight container or bag.
