I saw these bars on a blog last week and immediately knew I needed to try them. I have become addicted to blueberries lately, I put them on everything. I am a big cobbler fan also (what am I not a fan of?) so to combine blueberries and cobbler is YUM!
I have found a new favorite recipe. We ate it warm out of the oven with some vanilla ice cream and it was sooo good. I thought it couldn't get much better until I took a piece out of the fridge the next morning - yes, I ate a piece for breakfast! And it was even better cold! I am not allowed to make any more now. I have no will power.
I got this recipe from the blog yourhomebasedmom. She has lots of great recipes!
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup cold butter (2 sticks)
1/4 tsp. salt
zest and juice of one lemon
4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1/2 cup white sugar
4 tsp. cornstarch
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and grease a 9x13 pan.
Stir together the first three ingredients. Mix in the salt and lemon zest. Use a fork or pastry cutter to blend in the butter and egg. Pat half of the dough in the pan. It is okay if it is a little crumbly, just press it with your fingers until it looks like this.
In another bowl, stir together the sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice. Mix in the blueberries. I had some fresh berries but not enough, so I just substituted the remaining amount with frozen blueberries. I didn't even thaw them out! Layer the blueberry mixture over the dough in the pan.
Crumble the remaining dough over the top. It will already look pretty!
