Blueberry Pie Bars

I made these last night and they were finger licking good! You can cut them up as bars, slices of pie orrrr just dig in with a spoon like I did!


For the crumb part:

1 cup of sugar
3 cups of flour
1 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of salt
1 egg
1 cup of cold cubed butter

For the filling part:

4 cups of fresh blueberries
 tsp of vanilla extract
 tsp of corn starch 
1/2 cup of sugar


Preheat your oven to  375. In a mixing bowl, add the 1 cup of sugar, 3 cups of flour, 1 tsp of baking powder and 1/2 tsp of salt. Mix well. Cut in the cold butter and egg. The dough will be crumbly.

Next, make your filling. Add the blueberries, corn starch, 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 tsp of vanilla extract in a mixing bowl. Gently mash and stir the ingredients until they are well mixed.

Spray a 9x13 pan with non-stick spray. Take 1/2 of the dough mixture and layer it flat in the pan. Next, layer your filling mix on top. Top off with the remaining dough mixture. Cook in the oven at 375 for about 45 minutes or until it is golden brown and bubbly. If you are serving this warm, vanilla bean ice cream is the perfect topper! If you are cutting them into bars, let them cool completely before cutting them.
