Very Berry Bars

Sea Sun


I adopted this recipe on JAP and made a few changes. I made two is a blueberry bar using almond extract and a dash of cinnamon in the sugar topping.
The second is a triple berry bar using vanilla extract.

I dusted powdered sugar over these for presentation.

These are very moist and more like a dessert than a bar cookie. Delicious!
