Is your family headed back to work, school, or college these days? Are you prepping for a much anticipated summer getaway?

When it comes to pie, some of us live for the crust, and that’s definitely the highlight of these bars. A super simple homemade blackberry compote is sandwiched between two layers of flaky pie dough, and topped with a sweet glaze.
