With blackberry showing up in the fields and in the grocery stores, here’s a quick and easy way to put a nice treat on the dinner table or just have a nice snack.

Blackberry Pie Bars Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour (385g/13.5 OZ)
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar, divided (300g/ 10.6OZ)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Zest and juice of one lemon, divided
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch slices (230g/8 OZ)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 cups fresh blackberries (440g/16 OZ)
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch

Blackberry Pie Bars Cooking Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F).
  • Grease a 9×13-inch pan.
  • In a food processor, pulse together flour, 1 cup of sugar, baking powder, cinnamon salt and lemon zest.
  • Add the butter, egg and vanilla extra. Pulsing until dough is crumbly. Pat half of dough into the bottom of the prepared pan, saving the remaining dough for the topping.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the remaining 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice. Gently mix in the blackberries. Sprinkle the blackberry mixture evenly over the crust. Crumble remaining dough over the berry layer.
  • Bake in preheated oven for about 45 minutes, or until top is slightly brown (you are only looking for the top to slightly brown, if you cook for too long – the bottom will burn).
  • Cool completely before cutting into squares. Store in an airtight container.
