I love blueberries!
I found a great and simple recipe from Peanut Butter Runner the other day and it did not disappoint at all. It used up a lot of my fresh blueberries from Costco, too!
Blueberry Crumb Bars (adapted from Peanut Butter Runner)
- 1/2 cup of organic sugar
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 1/2 cups AP flour
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter (1 stick)
- 1 egg
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Zest and juice of 1/2 a lemon
- 2 cups fresh blueberries
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 2 tsp cornstarch
Preheat oven to 375F. Grease an 8 x 8 baking dish with cooking spray.
Stir 1/2 cup sugar, flour, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, and lemon zest. Cut the butter into small pieces and lightly beat the egg. Use a fork, your fingers or a pastry cutter and blend butter and egg into flour mixture. The dough will be crumbly. Pat half into prepared pan.
In another bowl, mix together the 1/4 cup sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice. Very gently mix in the berries and then sprinkle over the first layer of crust. Crumble remaining dough over berries and bake for 45 minutes in preheated oven or until the top is golden brown.
Let cool and cut into squares.
