* 1 tablespoon lemon juice

CRUST:
* 3 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 cup sugar
* 1 tablespoon baking powder

TOPPING:
* 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
* 1/2 cup sugar

Directions:
* In a saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch, water and raspberries. Bring to a boil over medium heat; boil for 5 minutes or until thickened, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; stir in lemon juice. Cool.

It looks so yummy...... I wonder if you could get away with a sugar-free jam? Big thanks on the recipe share...

Barbara, I think this would work great with Sugar-free jam! Now that I'm diabetic, I've started improvising alot of recipes to fit my "diet". If you try it, let me know! :)
