For the Crust:

  1. Heat your oven to 350°F. Grease and line a 9x9 inch square baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of your food processor combine the butter, sugar, flour and salt. Pulse 8-10 times until the dough resembles coarse sand.
  3. Dump the dough into your prepared baking pan and press firmly into the pan and the corners creating an even layer.
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the edges start to turn a light golden brown.
  5. In a small bowl whisk together the blackberry jam and bourbon and top the crust with the jam.
  6. Arrange the blackberries in a single layer on top of the jam and sprinkle the sugar on top.
  7. Place back in the oven and bake for another 20 minutes.
  8. Remove from the oven and let cool completely before removing from the pan.
  9. Dust the top with confectioners’ sugar and cut into 8 triangles.
  10. The bars can be cut into smaller squares or triangles to serve a larger crowd if desired.
  11. Bars are best served the day they are prepared.
