4 c. plateau berries
2 1/4 c. sugar
2 1/4 c. liquid, (black current juice)
1 tsp. almond extract
3 tbsp. margarine or butter
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
2 c. sifted flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2/3 c. shortening or margarine
1/2 c. milk

Combine sugar with juice and boil until sugar is dissolved. Add almond extract, cinnamon, nutmeg and margarine.

Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut shortening into the flour until it resembles coarse crumbs. Stir milk into flour and shortening, mixing all at once like pastry. On a lightly floured surface, roll out half of the dough about 1/4 inch thick rectangle piece. Cut 1 inch strips and lay in the bottom of an ungreased rectangular pan (11 x 7 x 1 1/2). Put only one layer of pieces into pan.

Spread plateau berries over the strips of dough in the pan. Pour the sugar-water mixture over them. Roll out the rest of the dough into another 1/4 inch thick rectangle piece. Slice in 1 inch strips. Put on top of berries, immersing some of the strips in the liquid. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake 35 minutes at 375. Serve as is or with ice cream.
