Lemon Blueberry Crumb Bars

I found this recipe off the website www.Mybakingaddiction.com. (She said that she got it off of Allrecipes.com) Yes, I'm addicted to baking blogs and finding recipes and trying them out. This was a big hit with my BF since he LOVES blueberries. Even though he's healthy conscious and refuses to eat most of my baked stuff, he inhaled like half of these. I have to admit, for something so easy to make, they were pretty delicious!

-1 cup white granulated sugar
-1 teaspoon baking powder
-3 cups all-purpose flour
-1 cup unsalted butter
-1 egg
-1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
-1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
-zest of two lemons
-4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
-1/2 cup white sugar
-3 teaspoons cornstarch

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a 9×13 inch pan with parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup sugar, 3 cups flour, salt, lemon zest and baking powder.

In a small bowl, whisk the egg and vanilla together until combined.

Blend the flour mixture with the butter and egg/vanilla mixture. Dough will be crumbly. Pat half of dough into the prepared pan.

In another bowl, stir together 1/2 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 preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until top is slightly brown. Cool completely before cutting into squares.

Yum! Enjoy!!
