- Blackberry Dessert
- 2 sticks butter [or margarine]
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 and 3/4 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 4 cups blackberries (or your favorite berry)
- 6 tablespoons cornstarch
- Whipped topping
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter and mix well with flour. Press into
a 13-by-9-inch baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes. Cool. Mix together
ingredients for filling and pour over cooled crust. For the topping, mix
together sugar, water, blackberries and cornstarch [I mix the sugar and
cornstarch before I add the water] in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and
cook 3 minutes. Cool, pour on top of cream cheese layer, and spread evenly.
Top with whipped topping. Refrigerate.
Serves 12 to 16.
