Lemon Squares are delicious, but some people just don’t like that much lemon. Enter the Lemon-Blackberry Bar. My old boss made these for me when I came back to work after my maternity leave, and they have become one of my favourites. These are simple to make, and oh-so delish!

Ingredients

  • 10 oz. Jar Lemon Curd
  • 10 oz. Jar Blackberry Jam
  • 1 Cup Unsalted Butter
  • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Cup White Sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Soda

  1. Preheat Oven to 375 F
  2. Cream butter, then add flour, sugar, and baking soda, mixing to coarse crumbs
  3. Pat 2/3 mixture in the bottom of a 9×13 pan and bake 10 minutes
  4. Remove from oven and let cool slightly
  5. Mix lemon curd and blackberry jam to your preferred taste, using about 10 oz total
  6. Spread mixture over base layer and crumble remaining flour mixture over the top
  7. Lower oven temperature to 350 F and bake bars 25 minutes, or until lightly browned

These are such a quick and easy bar to make. I have never made them the same way twice, either. I always play around with the lemon and blackberry mixture. I’ve done 2/3 lemon to 1/3 blackberry, half and half, 3/4 blackberry to 1/4 lemon, etc. The sweetness of the blackberry jam really offsets the sourness of the lemon, and there is such a great balance between the two.
