My schedule is quickly filling up for the rest of the year and I get stressed out even looking at it. So instead of dealing with it, I decided to make these Blackberry Pie Bars.
Between Jorge and I, we have over 12 trips before the end of the year. Some are work related and a bunch are personal, but it makes our calendars look pretty crazy. Today we sat down to go through and fill our joint calendar out and it was really overwhelming to look at.
Before the end of the year, we will be heading to NYC, Texas (more than once probably), Blue Ridge Mountains, Boston and South Florida to visit friends (and again to visit my baby sister at college). And that’s only our joint travel! Airlines really need to start offering stock options once you fly them as much as we do.
We are kicking this all off with a warm up weekend to Orlando. Some of Jorge’s family is in Orlando for the week and we are heading over for a quick over night stay to visit and catch up. Thankfully Orlando is only a little over an hour away, but that doesn’t mean we don’t need a road trip snack!
I quickly whipped up these Blackberry Pie Bars and they are just as good they look. I love that you get the taste of pie with these bars, but don’t actually have to roll out pie dough.
It’s a miracle! At least it is to me — the girl who unreasonably hates to deal with rolling out perfect even pie dough. If you love this recipe, you will also love this Skillet Berry Cobbler that requires no pie crust and combines Raspberries and Blackberries!
I love the burst of berries combined with all the delicious buttery crust surrounding them. I used blackberries, but raspberries, strawberries and blueberries would all work great too. Or go crazy and make them with multiple types of berries!
