While developing a treat for my bingo group, I asked my husband for ideas. He suggested a fruity bar. This berry bar is lightly sweet and so easy. —Nancy Phillips, Portland, Maine

"I made this recipe, because I love both kinds of berries ( berries are expensive), was really disappointed, it was really tart and the crust was hard to cut, just crumbled apart, would not recommend this recipe unless you like really like tart things."
