Sour Cream Berry Bars

by Cate on April 30, 2004

Base and Topping
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking soda

Filling
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup sour cream
1 egg
24 oz. dried mixed berries

Heat oven to 350. In large bowl, combine brown sugar and butter; blend well. Add 1-1/2 cups flour, oats and baking soda; mix until crumbs form. Press half of crumb mixture in bottom of lightly greased 15x10x1 baking pan (I used 10×13); reserve remaining mixture for topping. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in large bowl, combine all filling ingredients except berries; mix well. Stir in berries. Remove pan from oven. Pour filling mixture over partially baked crust. Crumble and sprinkle remaining half of crumb mixture over filling. Return to oven. Bake an additional 25-35 minutes or until center is set. Cool 1-1/2 hours or until completely cooled. Cut into bars. Store in refrigerator.
