Blueberry Crumb Bars!


Hello, everybody!
How's your summer going?
Anyone have any New England vacation plans,
or already have one under your belt?...
If so, please share them with us!
And for those of you who don't have anything planned,
yet still are craving a taste of our beloved region, fear no more-
The quickest way to get a taste is to find a regional recipe!
And I just so happen to have the perfect one for you ♥ . . .

Blueberry Crumb Bars!
This recipe hails from Bridgeport, Connecticut, and is
Don't judge simply by the picture- believe me- it tasted much better
than it looked! Think of it as a buttery crusted blueberry pie, only 
in bar-form, and much easier to make. Sounds like a winner to me!

Ingredients
1 c. plus 1/2 c. sugar, divided
3 c. all-purpose flour
1 t. baking powder
1 c. shortening
1 egg
1/8 t. salt
1/8 t. cinnamon
4 c. blueberries
3 t. cornstarch

Instructions
Mix together one cup sugar, flour, baking powder, shortening, egg, salt and cinnamon.
Mix well with pastry cutter or fork; dough will be crumbly. Pat half of the dough
into a greased 13"x9" pan (I used a 9"x9" pan which worked just as well!).
Mix together blueberries, remaining sugar and cornstarch. Place mixture into
pan over dough. Crumble remaining dough over berries. Bake at 375 
degrees for 45 minutes or until top is slightly brown. Makes 12-15 bars.

  1. Thanks for sharing the blueberry recipes. We have a wonderful Food Fair and I have made friends with the blueberry grower--such a nice man and he grows the most delicious blueberries. We eat them with yogurt, on our cereal and of course blueberry crunch!
