Gluten free Blackberry Bars

Gluten free Blackberry Bars

Recipe by: Gluten Free Baking By Rachelle (Rachelle Himmelman)

I make homemade jams every summer and blackberry is one of them.  I refuse to buy jam in the store ever again as I have no idea what is in it.  I make many different varieties and save them for when we need them or different baking projects.  I have been using my home made peach jam for my chicken glaze lately.  I have an over abundance of blackberry jam and thought, hmmm what shall I make with the extra.  These blackberry bars are so simple and will leave everyone thinking you really must have slaved away when in fact it took about a total of 15 minutes.  These bars are perfect for a potluck, a family gathering, packing in lunches, and many other things.  Enjoy~
