Berries, Oh Sweet Berries

There ain’t nothing better than fresh berries from the farm (well, maybe chocolate, but we are a little partial to chocolate, but berries are very close behind). This Saturday we are baking up Blueberry Cobbler Bars. These easy handheld treats make it perfect for double fisting. We prefer to consume our Saturday sweets two at time. We’re twins, you know, and double always fits us just right.

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks butter not softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup rolled oatmeal
  • 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 lb. fresh blueberries
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a 9×13 pan line parchment. Cut the butter into tablespoon portions and add to the mixing bowl. With the paddle attachment, mix in the sugars. Add the lemon juice, vanilla and almond extract. Mix in the flour a cup at a time.  Mix in the oats. The dough will be crumbly. Press 2/3 of the mixture into the bottom of the 9×13 pan. Be sure to leave 1/3 of the dough out for later. Bake for 15 minutes. Then remove from oven. Sprinkle the blueberries evenly over the top of the cookie. Then crumble the remaining dough on top of the blueberries. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 25-30 minutes or until the center is done and the edges are golden brown. Let cool completely then use a large knife and cut into bars. Serve with whipped cream.
