It’s officially blackberry season here in the Seattle area so prepare for some blackberry-related posts! First up is a modified lemon square recipe. Lemon squares make a nice, refreshing dessert during the summer, so I decided to add in some fresh blackberries. It turned out really well so I thought I would share.
- 8 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup flour
Preheat the over to 350 F and mix the crust ingredients together. Press evenly into greased 9 x 9 inch baking dish and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with blackberries.
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 2 eggs
- juice from 1 medium lemon
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Mix together the filling ingredients. The baking soda will react immediately with the lemon, so I mix it in last after I’ve already stirred everything else together. Once everything is thoroughly mixed, pour the filling over the crust and blackberries. Return to the oven and bake for another 20 minutes.
Let cool before serving, then cut and enjoy!
