Grab some berries and getting cracking on this pan of deliciousness.
Blueberry Crumb Bars
3/4 cup white sugar (I cut this down from 1 cup - hey, every little bit helps right?)
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
Zest and juice of one lemon (thinking of trying lime next time)
1 cup cold unsalted butter (2 sticks or 8 ounces)
4 cups fresh blueberries
1/4 cup white sugar (also cut this in half because I knew these blueberries were sweet already)
4 teaspoons cornstarch
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9×13 inch pan.
2. In a medium bowl, stir together 3/4 cup sugar, 3 cups flour, and baking powder. Mix in salt and lemon zest. Use a fork or pastry cutter to blend in the butter and egg. Dough will be crumbly. Pat half of dough into the prepared pan.

3. In another bowl, stir together remaining 1/4 cup sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice. Gently mix in the blueberries. Sprinkle the blueberry mixture evenly over the crust.
|He has to get is perfectly even.|

|Up close look before the oven.|
Makes me want to eat it now!
5. Bake in preheated oven for 45-60 minutes, or until top is slightly brown. (It took a full hour in my oven to reach desired color.)
