Recipe Ingredients for Eating Well Raspberry Bars

3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 tablespoons Splenda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces
2 tablespoons ice water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 envelope unflavored gelatin(or 2 teaspoons)
2 tablespoons water
3 cups fresh raspberries, divided
1/2 cup Splenda
4 tablespoons fat free cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons fat free milk
1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar

Recipe Directions for Eating Well Raspberry Bars

  1. To prepare crust: Preheat oven to 400F. Coat an 8-inch-square baking pan with cooking spray.

  2. Place flour, pecans, 2 tablespoons sugar and salt in a food processor; process until the nuts are finely ground. Add butter one piece at a time, pulsing once or twice after each addition, until incorporated. Add ice water and vanilla and pulse just until the dough starts to come together. Transfer to the prepared pan. Press evenly and firmly into the pan to form a bottom crust.

  3. Bake the crust until it looks set, but not browned, about 15 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.

  4. To prepare raspberry filling: Sprinkle gelatin over 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl; let stand, stirring once or twice, while you prepare the rest of the filling.

  5. Reserve 16 raspberries. Puree the remaining raspberries in a food processor until smooth. Transfer to a medium saucepan and stir in 1/2 cup sugar. Cook over medium heat until bubbling. Stir in the gelatin mixture and cook, stirring, until the gelatin is melted, about 1 minute.

  6. Fill a large bowl with ice water. Pour the raspberry mixture into a medium bowl and set it in the bowl of ice water. Refrigerate, stirring occasionally with a rubber spatula, until the mixture thickens to the consistency of loose jam and is beginning to set around the edges, about 30 minutes.

  7. Meanwhile, beat cream cheese, milk and confectioners? sugar in a medium bowl with an electric mixer until smooth.

  8. Spread the thickened raspberry filling evenly over the crust. Dollop the cream cheese mixture over the filling. Draw the tip of a sharp knife or skewer through the two fillings to create a swirled effect. Nestle the reserved berries into the filling, evenly spacing them so each bar will be topped with a berry when cut. Refrigerate until the bars are completely set, about 3 hours. Cut into 16 bars, one raspberry per bar
