Loretta Lynn’s Raspberry Snow Bars

Loretta Lynn’s Raspberry Snow Bars are just as iconic as her voice. I hope you’ll try this recipe! I made mine with melted butter and a little extra flour. The original recipe measurements will be included in the recipe notes below. These bars would also be delicious using strawberry, cherry, or apricot preserves. Any flavor of fruit preserves would work well in this recipe! Enjoy!

Crust: (I'm using butter; see original recipe in recipe notes below)

  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt (heaping, if using unsalted butter)
  • 3/4 c. melted butter (I used unsalted)
  • 2 egg yolks (kepp the whites for meringue topping)
  • 1/2 tsp. almond extract
  • 2 c. all purpose flour (8.5 oz.)


  • 1 c. red raspberry preserves
  • 1/2 c. shredded coconut (heaping)

Meringue Topping:

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 c. sugar


For the crust:

  • Combine sugar, salt, melted butter, egg yolks, and almond extract. Stir together well.
  • Add flour, and mix into a crumbly dough.
  • Press into 9x13 baking pan that has been lined with parchment paper. Lightly butter or spray the pan (not the sides, just the bottom) with nonstick spray to prevent sticking.
  • Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 15 minutes. The edges will just begin to turn golden.


  • While the crust is still hot, spread with raspberry preserves. Sprinkle coconut over the raspberry preserves.

Meringue topping:

  • In a small mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until foamy. Gradually beat in the sugar. Beat until stiff peaks form.
  • Spread meringue over the top of the filling, covering completely. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Remove from oven, cool completely, and cut into bars. Enjoy!
