Wild Blueberry Crumb Bars

These blueberry squares are ridiculously simple to make and incredibly delicious.
I found the recipe over at Smitten Kitchen and decided to try it because of it's rave reviews (and because of the abundance of blueberries around here these days). 
As usual, SK did not disappoint.
These bars are totally scrumptious!

Read on for the recipe...

Blueberry Crumb Bars (Recipe from Smitten Kitchen)

1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup cold unsalted butter (2 sticks or 8 ounces)
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon salt
Zest and juice of one lemon
4 cups fresh blueberries
1/2 cup white sugar
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 1 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 the sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice. Gently mix in the blueberries. Sprinkle the blueberry mixture evenly over the crust. Crumble remaining dough over the berry layer.

4. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until top is slightly brown. Cool completely before cutting into squares.

Wonderful! Summer is just around the corner (though you wouldn't know it from today's cooler "spring" weather). These look like the perfect thing to make as soon as the summer berries come out to play!
