Directions

Prepare a 9×13 baking pan with two sheets of parchment paper, leaving a little overhang to make for easy removal. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

In a bowl, mix together butter and sugar

Add vanilla, salt, and then flour

When the dough comes together, press a thin even layer into the bottom of the parchment lined baking pan

Use a fork to make indentations in the crust to prevent it from rising, then bake for 13-15 minutes

Set crust aside and let cool while preparing the filling

For the filling, mix together sugar, flour, eggs, lemon juice, and lemon zest, until fully incorporated

Pour over the cooled crust and drop raspberry jam into the filling one tablespoon at a time

Use a toothpick to swirl the raspberry jam throughout the filling

Cut Raspberry Red Vines into small pieces and drop into the filling

Bake for 20-25 minutes until the filling is set and golden brown around the edges

Let cool at room temperature for at least one hour before removing from the pan and transferring to the refrigerator to cool for another 2 hours

When completely cool, cut into 12 bars, sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy!
