Mixed Berry Patch Crumb Bars

1 1/2 c. flour

3/4 c. sugar, plus 1 T. for filling

1/2 t. baking powder

1/8 t. salt

1/4 t. cinnamon

1/2 c. shortening

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 t. almond extract

1/2 T. cornstarch

2 c. fresh or frozen berries

In a large bowl, combine flour, 3/4 c. sugar, baking powder, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.  Cut in shortening until mixture resembles crumbs.  Stir in eggs and extract.  Press two-thirds of this into an 8x8 greased baking dish.

In another bowl combine fruit, cornstarch and 1 T. sugar and gently toss.  Spoon this over the crust.  Sprinkle with the remaining crumb mixture.  Bake at 375 degrees for 35-45 minutes or until bubbly and golden.  Cool on a wire rack, then cut into bars.  Store in the fridge.
