Ingredients

  • 3

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 1/2

    cups sugar

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 1 1/2

    cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, chilled

  • FRUIT FILLING:

  • 4

    large eggs

  • 2

    cups sugar

  • 1

    cup sour cream

  • 3/4

    cup flour

  • Pinch salt

  • Zest of 1/2 lemon

  • 1

    teaspoon almond extract

  • 2

    (16-ounce) packages frozen blackberries, thawed and drained

Directions

To make the crust and topping, preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan. Combine the flour, sugar, and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse a few times to mix. Cut the butter into 1/2-inch cubes, and add to the flour mixture. Process until the butter is evenly distributed but the mixture is still crumbly, 30 to 60 seconds. Reserve 1 1/2 cups of the mixture to use as the topping. Press the remaining mixture into the bottom of the pan, and bake 12 to 15 minutes. Cool for at least 10 minutes. To make the filling, whisk the eggs in a large bowl, then add the sugar, sour cream, flour, salt, lemon zest, and almond extract. Gently fold in the berries and spoon the mixture over the crust. Sprinkle the remaining flour mixture evenly over the filling, and bake 45 to 55 minutes.
