      Thanks, I never had raspberries until I married someone from NY state and his mom had a raspberry patch–too hot to grow raspberries where I grew up. Very quickly, they became my favorite berry.

    I am of Danish descent and was looking for this recipe across the internet. I found an alternate and delicious hindbaer snitter (Danish raspberry bars) recipe at
    that turned out well.
    Yours looked good, but instructed the adding of oats, which are not included in your ingredient list so I couldn’t make this. I thought you would like to know,
    and good luck with your bars!
