Very different and not what I expected, but delicious. A bar with a cakey texture on top of a buttery crust. Used fresh summer berries.

These bars are great. We have made them 3 times with fresh blackberries so far. Once we had some kept overnight and they got a bit soggy, so eat them soon! Today we tried them with raspberries, they are firmer and also yummy! We have used them with sour cream and also the substitution of plain yogurt with cornflour. Also used KlynnPadilla's suggestion of some nutmeg.

Wow, these were excellent. Let me add my 5 stars as well. They have a very moist, spongy top layer to them with a nice firm cookie base. I didn't have fresh blackberries so I used a frozen medley of blackberries, blueberries and Raspberries. These were very easy to make. These would stand out at any party as they are different than most bars. Thanks for sharing!!!
