Buttery Blackberry Bars

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.

Mix up crust until crumbly.


Press half of mixture into an 8×8 baking pan.


Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes, then cool for about 10 minutes.


While the crust is cooling, whisk eggs.


Add in flour, sugar, sour cream, lemon, almond and salt, blending well.


Add berries to filling.
Folding them in gently.


Spoon filling over crust and top with remaining crumbles. Bake for about 45 minutes or until top is lightly browned and berry filing is bubbly.


Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
Then top with vanilla frosting you have nuked for about 10 seconds to warm. Just pour it over the top in a drizzling pattern.


Let cool completely to serve as bars or scoop out warm and serve with vanilla ice cream!
