Saskatoon Bars

Our son-in-law, Victor, loves saskatoon berries and this was one way to “butter him up ” just a little. (Just kidding).


You will need:

  • 1  cup flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • Jar of Saskatoon jam
  • 1 cup whipping cream


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut butter into dry ingredients and press into an ungreased nine inch square pan. Bake twenty minutes. Let cool completely.

Spread jam over the pastry. Spoon sweetened whipped cream flavoured with almond over the top. Cut into generous squares. If you want to do it a bit differently, cut into diamond shapes.

Your kids can do this, provided they are taught how to work with a hot oven and remove hot pans. It is simple, tasty and “more please” is the request.
