I needed to make something sweet and wonderful for a group of people who’ll be gathering at my house tonight.
So I found a recipe on Pinterest that sparked my interest, gave it a few tweaks and ta-da… wonderfully delicious Blackberry bars.
These were easy to put together and so yummy.
Captain Cavedweller may have tasted more than his fair share in his efforts to provide quality control over my baked goods.
Buttery Blackberry Bars
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
pinch of salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp almond extract
3 cups fresh blackberries
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly coat an 8×8 baking pan with non-stick spray.
Combine the sugar, flour, salt and butter, cutting together until the mixture is crumbly. Divide in half.
Press half into the bottom of the baking pan and bake for about 10 minutes. Cool for about 10 minutes.
While it is cooling, whip eggs, then add in sugar, sour cream, lemon, salt, and almond extract. Mix well. Gently fold in the berries. Spoon over crust then top with remaining crumbled mixture.
Bake about 45 -50 minutes until mixture is lightly browned and berries are bubbly.
Cool and cut into bars or scoop out like a crisp and serve warm with ice cream!
