Some of you (me being included in this statement) place “fruit” outside of the “dessert” category. I remember when my Grammie would have her bridge group over….she would make this pineapple upside down cake for dessert. I always thought…”well that’s a rip off….there is no chocolate! That’s an excuse for a dessert.”

Since then I have come to see the light….I love a warm apple pie as much as a piece of chocolate silk. And it pretty much stops there….until this dessert. I suppose it could be considered a “breakfast bar”….but really it is good any time of day. Coffee+this little treat = perfection. No joke..yum….

triple berry bars recipe @cleverlyinspired (7)

I used my food processor to pull the crust together quickly. Toss in cubed butter and all the dry ingredients. Pulse until it is crumbly. Spread 1/2 of crust in a buttered 9 by 13 pan. Pat down nice and flat.

Spoon Triple berry (or any berry) preservatives that you like. Using an off-set spatula makes the spreading easy. Cover the preserves with the rest of the crust and pat gently.

Allow the bars to fully cool in the pan before you cut up. One pan made about 32 smaller bars.
