Lemon Blueberry Bars

January 27, 2011

I love anything lemon! This is  a quick and easy  recipe for lemon bars,with the addition of fresh blueberries mixed in. Just the right amounts of tart and sweet,with that burst of blueberry in each bite.

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 heaping tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 pint blueberries
  • 1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar for decoration

Preheat oven to 350

Shortbread Crust: Mix one cup flour and 1/4 cup confectioners sugar. Melt the butter and stir into flour mixture.

Press flat and even into an 8×8 inch baking dish.

 Bake for 15 minutes.

While baking, make the top layer

Mix 3/4 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, and the baking powder. Beat eggs and add to mixture, stirring well. Add lemon juice and rind, mix again. Stir in blueberries.

Pour over bottom layer.

 Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. It will be a little jiggly,and lightly browned on top. Cool a little, cut into squares while warm; dust with confectioners sugar.
