So I needed yet another dessert for Sunday dinner at my parents' and these Blueberry Crumb Bars have been all over the food blogs that I visit regularly. I finally decided on them while on Annie's Eats because her pictures were so beautiful! I definitely missed the blueberry boat though because I could only find them for $3.49 a pint!
These bars were a big hit all around with their buttery layers enhancing the sweet blueberries. Especially with my sister, Meg, who commented all night about how delicious they were and even ate them for breakfast the next day!
Annie's Eats by way of Smitten Kitchen
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup cold butter
¼ tsp. salt
zest and juice of one lemon
4 cups fresh blueberries
½ cup sugar
4 tsp. cornstarch
Preheat the oven to 375°. Grease a 9×13” pan.
In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup sugar, flour and baking powder. Mix in salt and lemon zest. Use a fork or pastry cutter to blend in the butter and egg. The dough will be crumbly. Pat half of the dough into the prepared pan.
Crumble remaining dough over the berry layer.
Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until top is slightly brown. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
