Blackberry-Peach Cobbler Bars

I am a cobbler junkie. When I saw this in the new Southern Living, I had to try it. Think about these bars with homemade peach ice cream this summer. Wow, what a combo….

1 cup butter, softened

1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

1 1/2 cups sugar, divided

4 eggs

1 tables vanilla

1 teas baking powder

3/4 teas salt

3 1/4 cups flour

3 (6 oz) packages fresh blackberries (about 4 cups)

4 cups peeled and sliced fresh firm ripe peaches

3 tables bourbon (opt)

1 cup roasted glazed pecan pieces

Preheat oven to 350. Beat first 2 ingredients and 1 cup of the sugar at medium speed with mixer, until creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla.

Stir together baking powder, salt and 3 cups flour. Gradually add to butter mixture, beating just until blended. Spread three-fourths of batter in a greased and floured 13×9 pan; sprinkle with blackberries.

Stir together remaining 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup flour in a medium bowl; add peaches and bourbon* (if you are omitting bourbon, use either whipping cream or orange juice), stirring to coat. Spoon mixture over blackberries.

Stir pecans into remaining batter; dollop over peach mixture.

Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until golden and bubbly. Cool completely on a wire each. Cut into bars.
