If I were a blueberry, I would want to land my big blue butt in this pan. What a way to go out…
This recipe is one I posted way long ago, when my blog was just a baby. Now it is old, the blog I mean…well the blogger is too. I love getting older, some day I’ll tell you all about it. The aches, the pains, the urge to watch Let’s Make a Deal. And when did Bob Barker get so hot?
But for now, we have Blueberry Pie Bars to make and I might be older…but I’m really happy, because I have dessert! (us old people love dessert…preferably something soft so we can gum it…).
Such a simple recipe. You mix up a standard quick crust of flour, butter etc. Remove one cup before pressing in the bottom of pan, to use for the crumble on top. (I am giving you a visual of this so you don’t forget this step… I am old. I always forget).
Mix up your filling ingredients that include eggs and sour cream …yes sour cream! How clever is that? Top with that cup of crust mixture you saved, and bake.
I used fresh blueberries but you can substitute frozen, just don’t thaw them. Use them frozen or you will have a big blue mess on your hands. It will still taste good but it won’t be pretty. I like pretty.
I turned this same recipe into Pineapple Bars ,and it is the most popular dessert recipe on this blog! I just subbed canned crushed pineapple for the blueberries.
There are Cherry Pie Bars too with easy step by step instructions!
Enjoy your day!
