Raspberries and Cream Bars have a sweet chewy crust, creamy cheesecake filling, and are topped with a sweet cream glaze! Perfect potluck and party recipe.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease cookie sheet.
For crust, cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each egg. Add in vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking powder. Add to the creamed butter mixture until combined. Save heaping cup of dough to top bars with. Spread the crust dough in prepared cookie sheet in an even layer (except the reserved dough for the top).
For cream filling, beat cream cheese, egg, ½ cup sugar, and vanilla together until smooth and creamy. Spread cream cheese filling evenly over crust dough.
Spoon mashed raspberries on top of cream cheese filling. Drop remaining crust dough in small pieces over top of bars.
Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. The middle may be slightly jiggly, it’s okay. Let cool completely.
For glaze, combine powdered sugar, butter, vanilla, and milk. Drizzle over cooled bars. Slice and serve.
Also delicious using peaches, blueberries, or strawberries!
