Baking with berries is one of my favorite things to do in the summer. The most popular berry recipe is triple berry pie. It has a flaky lattice pie crust that allows the berries to bubble through. My favorite fruit is blueberries and I love how the flavor shines through in my blueberry cobbler recipe. It also serves well warm with ice cream. If you have extra raspberries, try my raspberry oatmeal bars. They have a buttery crust with a hint of almond extract.
