BLACKBERRY BARS Ingredients: 1 cup all-purpose flour 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed 1/4 cup butter 1/2 cup sour cream 1 egg, beaten 3/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 1 1/2 cups fresh blackberries Preparation:
Combine flour and brown sugar; cut in butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Press 1 1/3 cups of mixture in bottom of an ungreased 8-inch square pan.
Combine remaining crumb mixture, sour cream, egg, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla; blend well. Stir in blackberries. Spoon over crust, spreading evenly. Bake at 350° for 30 to 40 minutes. Cool; cut into bars.
Note: I made a double batch of the shortbread crust and used all of this to line a 9x13 inch pan. Then I made a scant single recipe of it to make the topping mixture. Yummy!
