Blackberry Shortbread Squares

With all the fresh fruit everywhere I wanted to try something new.  This recipe came from Martha Stewart's Dinner at Home cookbook.  We served it with a scoop of ice cream on top, which wasn't in the recipe.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Put a piece of parchment on a 9 x 13 pan and spray with Pam.  Place Almonds on top.  Cook in the oven for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown. 

In the meantime, cream butter with confectioners sugar in mixer.  Add almond extract.  Whisk together flour, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl.

Pulse almonds until finely ground.

Once ground, add to bowl with flour, salt, and cinnamon.

Add mixture to butter until a crumbly dough forms.  Press dough (except on cup) into the pan.

Add blackberries to the top.

Add one cup of the dough to the top of the berries.  Cook for 40-45 minutes. 

Let set for 5 minutes to cool.
