Blackberry Lime Bars made with a creamy, lime filling, fresh blackberries, and an easy graham cracker crust. These lime squares are a family favorite dessert!
Whenever I get asked to bring a dessert to a summer potluck, I usually make and take my Lemon Blueberry Bars or my Lemon Raspberry Bars. They are always a hit. If you’ve made them, you know what I am talking about.
My new favorite bar recipe are these Blackberry Lime Bars. They are similar to the oh so loved lemon bars, but made with lime and blackberries. If you like the lemon bars, you need to try this recipe too. These easy lime squares are a great summer treat!
Josh LOVES all things lime so he was thrilled about the lime bars…until I told him I was taking them to a party. He wasn’t happy about that. He wanted ALL the lime bars to himself. He kept hovering around the kitchen while I was making them. I knew I had to keep my guard up:)
The bars start with an easy graham cracker crust. You only need crushed graham crackers, sugar, melted butter, and a pinch of salt to make this no-fail crust.
To make the creamy lime filling, you need egg yolks, sweetened condensed milk, lime zest, and fresh lime juice. Mix until smooth and pour the filling over the baked graham cracker crust.
Place fresh blackberries into the filling and bake! Let the bars cool, cut into squares, and ENJOY!
These creamy, tart lime bars dotted with juicy blackberries are DREAMY! You need to make them this summer.
Josh kept dancing around the bars, so I let him taste one before I took them to my party. He gave them two thumbs up…and then he went to the store to buy more ingredients to make the bars for us. I guess one Blackberry Lime Bar wasn’t enough:)
