RE: LOOKING for: barnes and noble lemon raspberry crumb bars

Don't know if you want to use a cake mix but I found this recipe:
Lemon Raspberry Crumb Bars Recipe
1 (18.25 ounces) yellow or white cake mix (with or without pudding)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
1 egg
1 (14 ounces) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 pint fresh raspberries (a little over a cup)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In large bowl, combine cake mix, butter and egg. Blend on low speed until crumbly. (Do not overmix, or mixture will become sticky.)

Reserve 2 cups crumb mixture, and place remainder in greased 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Using fingers or spatula, press mixture evenly into bottom of pan. Bake for 15 minutes.

White crust is baking, prepare topping. In medium bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk with lemon juice. Stir until well-blended. (Mixture will thicken as you stir.)

Arrange raspberries evenly over surface of partially cooked crust. Pour lemon mixture over raspberries as evenly as possible. (Coverage will be thin in some places.) Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture on top.

Bake for 20 minutes more, or until lightly browned on top. Cool and cut into bars. Keep refrigerated.

These delicious lemon bars are wonderfully tart with a novel addition of a raspberry layer which goes perfectly well. We love them.

1 cup unsalted butter, softened

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup icing sugar

6 large eggs

2 cups sugar

1/2 cup fresh lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon lemon extract (optional)

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

4 teaspoons all-purpose flour

1/2 cup raspberry preserves (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350F and spray a 9- inch square pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Combine all the ingredients for the crust in a medium bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until a soft dough forms.
Press evenly into the prepared pan.
Chill for 10 minutes.
Bake the crust for 15 minutes, then let cool in the baking pan for 15 minutes.
Combine all the ingredients for the lemon topping in a bowl and whisk until blended.
Spread the raspberry preserved evenly over the baked crust.
Pour the lemon topping over the raspberry layer.
Place in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes.
Lower the oven temperature to 325F and bake for 20-25 minutes longer, or until the topping is set.
