I've been lazy lately.. usually once or twice a week I get a little panicky when I think about how I should have blogged about this.. or taken that picture to show what peanut butter does to  a clean wall.. but since we’ve gotten our new camera I took a bunch of pictures of food I was cooking and never got around to posting them..

It didn’t help that school started last week and I have been trying to get into the groove of doing chores while helping out the kids and getting dinner on the stove..
This year is so much better… so far.. check back again in December when I am about to tear out my hair because no one has the same gusto they used to have.

But today I am sharing my favorite blueberry bar recipe.. a not too sweet snack that the kids and Adam can stain their teeth with.

I used frozen blueberries.. I am sure that fresh would have been so much better but I just didn’t have time to run outside this morning and pick some fresh off my bushes.. I was busy tending to the peach trees..

AAAAAnnnnnnnddd since I have none of those I use frozen..


We get our ingredients together..


Add our flour, sugar, salt together


Add our butter and start mixing..



Once it breaks down the butter so far I add my egg

Perfect!!!
I don’t have the time or patience to use the pastry blender.. but if you do have at it..
Then come and dust for me..

Pat half of the mixture into your greased pan


In large bowl add sugar and cornstarch


Add and mix your blueberries  


Spoon on top of crust and  then crumble the rest of the crust on top..


Ready to be baked


Ready to be devoured..


Recipe

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 teaspoon salt
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. Use a fork or pastry cutter to blend in the butter and egg. ( I use my mixer…)Dough will be crumbly. Pat half of dough into the prepared pan.
3. 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.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until top is slightly brown. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
