Saskatoon Squares

 Hi there.  This is Wendy.  I am a friend of Kelsey & Kim and have been invited to share a recipe.  They recently dropped by while on their Alberta tour.  I live just north of Millarville in southern Alberta and enjoy our local saskatoons.  You can can substitute blueberries or other fruit but it's a great recipe for saskatoons.

4 cups saskatoons, fresh or frozen
1 lemon
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar with 4 tsp cornstarch
Put berries in large pot.  Grate lemon peel onto berries.Squeeze juice of lemon into berries.  Cook until berries release some juice.  Add the sugar & cornstarch, cook until it starts to thicken.

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 egg                    Beat these 3 ingredients
21/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt           Add to above mixture

Press 2/3 of this into ungreased 9x13 pan.  Spread berry filling over.  Top with rest of crumb mixture.  Bake @ 350 for 35-40 minutes.  Until nicely browned.

Serve with dollop of sweetened sour cream. (To 1 cup sour cream add 4 tbsp dark brown sugar & 1/2 tsp vanilla.)
