Blueberry Pie Bars

If I were a Blueberry, I would want to land my big blue butt in this pan...what a way to go out...if your a Blueberry I mean.  Seriously, these are some killer bar cookies...and easy?...oh, get me started! 

 I found several variations of this recipe on Pinterest (cause' that's where all the groovy recipes are).   I eventually settled on Kleinworth & Co. version.  Why?.. well they had the best picture of course so they must be the best, turns out I was right!

 You can use fresh or frozen blueberries and I'll just bet you could substitute Raspberries, Apples or Peaches...oh yum, Peaches sound perfect for next time!

Blueberry Pie Bars


1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2  cup sugar
pinch salt
1 1/2 sticks cold butter (cubed)


 2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup sour cream
pinch salt
3 cups fresh blueberries


Grease 9x13 glass baking dish- set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Add flour, sugar, salt and cubed butter to mixing bowl, beat until combined and crumbly.

Take 1 cup of mixture and set aside. (I really tried to forget this step so I'm giving you a visual)

  • Take remaining mixture and firmly press into your baking dish, covering the bottom. Bake 15 minutes.
  • While crust is baking- whisk eggs in a large bowl.
  • Add sugar, sour cream, flour and salt.
  • Gently fold in blueberries. (if frozen, you may want to wait just until you are ready to pour into the crust so they don't go all purple on ya)
  • When crust is ready - remove from oven and add filling. Gently spooning over the top of the crust.
  • Sprinkle with remaining crust mixture you had set aside.
  • Bake 1 hour or until top is lightly browned.
  • Cool a bit before serving to make easier to cut.
  • Print and save this recipe...your going to be making it a lot!
