Blueberry Crumb Bars

These were so simple to make and delicious too. I love blueberries- I really do. In the third grade, I did a report on blueberries- and now I bake with blueberries! This recipe is from via Smitten Kitchen (who's writing a cookbook! I'm very excited.). I modified it a bit more.

Blueberry Crumb Bars

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter shredded on box grater or cut into tiny pieces

  • 1/2 egg (whisk one egg and estimate 1/2 of it)

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

  • splash of lemon juice

  • 2 cups bluberries (fresh or frozen)

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 2 teaspoons corstarch

  1. preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9 x 9 inch pan

  2. In a small bowl, stir together 1 cup sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Use a fork, pastry cutter, or hands to blend in the butter and egg. Dough will be crumbly. Pat half of the dough into the pan

  3. In another bowl, stir together the sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, and bluberries. Sprinkle the bluberry mixture over the crust. Crumble remaining dough over the berry layer

  4. bake in oven for 45 minutes, or until top is slightly brown. Cool completely (or throw in the fridge if you're impatient like me) before cutting into squares.

  1. I remember that blueberry report in 3rd grade! I wished that I picked that one because the only other person doing it on mangoes was Dyllan Baugh... ugh :)
