Blackberry Butter Bars

blackberry butter bars

When it comes to baking, I typically prefer to make each layer from scratch as I find it often yields the best (and most satisfying) results. But every once in a while time is of the essence, and as life gets busier, cheat-cuts have become more necessary. Partially made using a store-bought cake mix, these blackberry butter bars are ridiculously easy, and make for a delicious (and beautiful!) crowd-pleasing dessert. Plus, no one would be any the wiser if you never mentioned that Betty Crocker may have lent a helping hand ;)
