If you’re looking for a sweet and nutty dessert or just a special snack treat, we’ve got the recipe for you. Our blackberry-pecan squares have a buttery toffee flavor, enhanced by toasted pecans. And it’s all complimented by the wonderful taste of blackberries.
BLACKBERRY PECAN SQUARES —
2 cups blackberries
1 cup pecans, toasted
½ cup butter (salted), softened
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1⅔ cup flour
1 tsp. vanilla
½ tsp. salt
First, grease an 8 inch square baking pan with butter and set aside. Stir together flour, soda and salt.
Cream butter and sugar with a mixer about 3 minutes until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat. Continue to beat slowly, adding in the flour mixture until combined. Gradually add 3/4 cup toasted pecans and mix.
Then spread the batter in a pan.
Sprinkle berries on top, and scatter on remaining nuts.
Bake at 325° for 50 to 55 minutes.
Let it cool for 30 minutes and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Cut into squares and serve.
