Easy Blackberry Pie Bars

I love these blackberry pie bars! The sweet berry filling and tender, flaky crust are magical together.



INGREDIENTS
CRUST
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (12 1/2 ounces)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 egg, separated
2/3 cup milk (actually a little less)
1/2 cup cornflakes cereal, crushed
FILLING
3 to 4 cups blackberries
2/3 cup sugar (more or less depending on sweetness of berries)
2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 to 2 teaspoons lemon zest (optional)
GLAZE
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon water or milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

INSTRUCTIONS
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13 pan with foil, overhanging on the ends so you can easily lift to remove the bars from the pan. Lightly spray the foil with cooking spray.
Add the flour, salt, shortening, and butter to a large bowl and mix with a pastry blender until it looks like cornmeal with pea-sized and smaller pieces.
Place the egg yolk in a small liquid measuring cup and lightly beat with a fork. Then add milk to the mixture until it reaches 2/3 cup. Stir the milk mixture into the flour mixture.
Divide the dough into two equal portions. Lightly cover one portion with plastic wrap or other so it doesn't dry out, then roll out the other portion until it is close to 9x13 size or a little smaller. Carefully place the rolled out dough into the prepared pan as the bottom crust, gently press it out to cover the bottom of the pan, if needed. Spread crushed cornflakes over the bottom crust.
