BUT I love to bake
To be honest I sometimes don't even taste these yummy things I make for the people I love
maybe some day I will get over that
I made these Bars for a concession for a friend. Managed to make enough to give my parents a taste too. They went over so well I found myself making Blackberry crumb bars the next week:)
These are easier to cut once chilled and store best in the fridge.
1 Cup Sugar
1 tsp baking powder
3 Cups all Purpose Flour
1 Cup Cold unsalted Butter
1/4 tsp salt
Zest and Juice of One Lemon
4 Cups Fresh Blueberries
4 tsp Corn Starch
- Preheat Oven to 375. Grease a 9x13 " Pan.
- In a medium bowl stir together 1 Cup Sugar, 3 Cups Flour, and Baking Powder. Mix in salt and Lemon Zest. Use a fork or a pastry cutter to blend in the butter and egg. Dough will be crumbly. Pat 1/2 of dough into pan.
- In another bowl stir together sugar, corn starch and lemon juice. Gently mix in the blueberries. Sprinkle the blueberry mixture evenly over crust. Crumble remaining dough over the berry layer.
- Bake in preheated oven for about 45 mins or unitl the top is lightly brown. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
