Blueberry Crumble Bars

This past summer I picked LOTS of blueberries.  I froze some so that we would have them throughout the winter.  We use them in all sorts of things like muffins, yogurt, oatmeal, pancakes, waffles, cheesecake, smoothies, and many others.  These bars are easy and SO delicious.  You can eat them alone or serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 Cups of Flour
  • 3/4 Cups of Sugar
  • 1/8 Cup Lemon Juice
  • 1 Pint Blueberries
  • 1/8 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Corn Starch
  • 1 Stick Cold Butter
  • 1 Egg
Makes 12 bars

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a bowl combine the flour, 1/2 cup of sugar, salt, and baking powder.  Cut the butter into cubes and add to mixing bowl.  Add egg.  Using a fork or a pastry blender, combine the ingredients until they become a crumbly mixture.  Grease the bottom and sides of an 8x8 baking dish.  Firmly press 1/2 of the crumb mixture into the bottom of the dish.  In a separate bowl, combine blueberries, remaining 1/4 cup of sugar, lemon juice, and cornstarch.  Toss to coat the berries.  Place the blueberry mixture on top of the pressed dough.  Cover with remaining crumble.  Bake for 35-40 minutes.  Cool completely and then cut into bars.
