All the goodness of pie without the work!
Have you tried Betty Lou’s Fruit Bars yet? They’re available at Walmart and they come in blackberry, blueberry, cherry, and apple and taste just like pie!
They’re gluten-free, vegan, have no GMOs and contain none of the 8 major food allergens identified by the FDA. Plus, all sugars come from natural fruit and fruit juice!
I knew the instant I tasted them that they’d make an easy but impressive spring and summer dessert paired with a mixed berry compote and a dollop of whipped cream.
To make the mixed berry compote, heat butter, sugar, berries and lemon zest in a saucepan until butter melts and sugar dissolves. Then bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
Add lemon juice and cornstarch and cook a bit longer. It’ll turn into a nice shiny sauce. The mixed berry compote can be served warm or cold.
Put several spoonfuls in each dessert dish and add chunks of Betty Lou’s fruit bars on top, then add another spoonful of sauce.
Finish with a dollop of whipped cream and a drizzle of the fruit sauce.
Serve and enjoy!
