Blueberry Crumb Bars

These bars are just as good as (if not better than) blueberry pie and they only take minutes to make!

Blueberry Crumb Bars

1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 cups flour
1 cup shortening
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
-----
4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1 /2 cup sugar
3 teaspoons cornstarch

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13 inch pan. In medium size bowl, stir together 1 cup sugar, 3 cups flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Use a fork or pastry cutter to blend in the shortening and egg. Dough will be crumbly. Pat half of the dough into the prepared pan.
In another bowl stir together the sugar and cornstarch. Gently mix in the blueberries. Sprinkle the blueberry mixture evenly over the crust. Crumble remaining dough over the berry layer. Bake in a preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until the top is slightly brown. Cool completely before cutting into squares.

This sounds great...I'm going to make this. I do have one question...by shortening do you mean Crisco or butter? Thanks.

Speaking as someone who ate these, I can vouch for how good they are! The worst part about them is having to stop eating them! I could easily have eaten the whole pan!

I just printed it out...sounds yummy. We used to have a farm nearby where we could pick blueberries, but it seems to have closed now......SAD about that. *sigh*

I can attest to these little jobbies. Our square dancing group loved them and two girls took the recipe home with them. Thanks for sharing with me.
