Meyer lemon & raspberry bars are divinely zesty and sweet with a light floral scent. Meyer lemons are a relative of the humble lemon but have a more complex floral aroma, are less acidic and are sweet and superbly juicy. In this recipe they have delivered a beautiful scent and a naturally sweet touch, whilst the addition of the raspberries to the recipe adds a lovely texture. These bars are soft in the centre but chewy and delicious on the outside and will satisfy both vegetarians and omnivores alike!
