Summary

There is nothing better than a fresh fruit dessert.They are certainly one of my favorite things to bake. This recipe can be made using blackberries or blueberries, I have used both and they are both delicious. This recipe makes a large pan of bars, so it would be good for a pot luck or a family gathering.

Instructions

  1. 1In a bowl, combine flour and sugar. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine sour cream, egg, egg yolk and vanilla until smooth; add to crumb mixture. Toss with a fork until dough forms a ball. Divide dough in half; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  1. 1For filling, combine 2 cups sugar and flour in a large saucepan; add blackberries. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture begins to boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat; stir in butter and cinnamon. Cool slightly.
  1. 1On a lightly floured surface, roll one portion of dough into a 17-in. × 12-in. rectangle; transfer to a greased 15-in. × 10-in. × 1-in. baking pan. Spread with filling. Roll remaining dough into a 15-in. × 10-in. rectangle; cut into 1/2 inch strips. Make a lattice crust over filling; seal and flute edges.
  1. 1Brush egg over pastry. Sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake at 350 F. for 40-45 minutes or until crust is golden and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. Slice into bars. Yield: 20 servings.
