Blackberry Bars

Here is one of Jen's recipes. This looks super-yummy, and they were easy to put together. I have not cut them yet, but they sure smell fantastic! Depending on how they turn out, I am considering making a double-batch. Thanks Jen!!!!

Blackberry Bars

· 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 cup fresh blackberries
· powdered sugar, sifted

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 2 1/2 x 2 1/2-inch bars. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

The Result:
Fan-freakin'-tastic! And yes, I did make a double-batch!!!
