Blackberry Pie Bars

This recipe was found at Haute Farms, but the original credit goes to Pink Parsley. Enjoy!

Crust and Topping

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, chilled

Fruit Filling

  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • pinch salt
  • zest of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 2 (16-oz) packages frozen blackberries, thawed and drained

To make the crust and topping, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×13 inch baking pan.

Combine the flour, sugar, and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse a few times to mix. Cut the butter into 1/2-inch cubes, and add to the flour mixture. Process until the butter is evenly distributed but the mixture is still crumbly, 30-60 seconds.

Reserve 1 1/2 cups of the mixture to use as the topping. Press the remaining mixture into the bottom of the pan, and bake 12-15 minutes. Cool for at least 10 minutes.

To make the filling, whisk the eggs in a large bowl, then add the sugar, sour cream, flour, salt, lemon zest, and almond extract. Gently fold in the berries and spoon the mixture over the crust. Sprinkle the remaining flour mixture evenly over the filling, and bake 45 to 55 minutes.

Cool at least 1 hour before cutting into bars, or scoop out of the pan to serve cobbler-style.

Blackberry Hoisin Ginger Pork Tenderloin

This recipe was found at Carlsbad Cravings

Pork Tenderloin Brine

  • 2 pounds pork tenderloin, silver skin removed
  • 1/4 cup kosher salt
  • 3 cups water, warm
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 cup ice cubes

Pork Tenderloin Rub

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Blackberry Hoisin Ginger Glaze

  • 1/2 cup blackberry preserves
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce (I use this one) found in the Asian section of any grocery store
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger (depending on your ginger love, I use 2)
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Garnish (optional)

  • Scallions
  1. In a gallon-size freezer bag, dissolve 1/4 cup of kosher salt in the warm water. Add the remaining brine ingredients, including the pork. Brine for exactly 20 minutes. The pork becomes mealy if its brined longer.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the Blackberry Hoisin Ginger Glaze by melting 1 tablespoon butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes and saute for 30 seconds. Stir in blackberry preserves, hoisin sauce, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper. Taste and add more red pepper flakes if desired, remembering that the glaze will be less "spicy" because only a little is drizzled over each serving.
  3. At exactly 20 minutes, remove the pork from the brine and pat dry. Rub the pork all over with 1 tablespoon olive oil, followed by 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper.
  4. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  5. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. When oil is very hot and rippling, add pork tenderloin. Sear each side until browned, approximately 1-2 minutes per side. Place tenderloin on rack in shallow roasting pan or a rack paced on a baking sheet. Brush with Blackberry Hoisin Ginger Glaze, brushing again after 15 minutes of cooking. Roast approximately 25 to 30 minutes or until until an internal thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the tenderloin registers between 145 and 150 degrees F (63 and 65 degrees C). This means the pork will be juicy and slightly pink in the middle. If you don’t want any pink, then cook a little longer, being careful not to overcook or it will dry out.
  6. When pork is done, let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Meanwhile, warm the sauce. Slice pork thinly then drizzle with Blackberry Hoisin Ginger Glaze - either on a platter or on individual servings.
  7. Enjoy!
