I love fresh blueberries and this recipe highlights them well.


  1. In a mixing bowl, add the flour and brown sugar; stir to mix.
  2. With a pastry blender, cut in the butter until mixture resembles coarse meal.
  3. Press 1 1/3 cup of mixture onto the bottom of an ungreased 8-inch square baking pan.
  4. In another bowl, mix together the cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Add the remaining crumb mixture, sour cream, egg, and vanilla; stir to blend.
  6. Add blueberries; stir to combine.
  7. Spoon filling mixture evenly over the crust.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
  9. Cool in the pan.
  10. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  11. Cut into bars and serve.

This is an incredibly versatile recipe that is easy to make and has an excellent flavor. I baked the blueberry bars while we ate dinner and served them hot with vanilla icecream. Next time I think they'll make a good breakfast.

I made this using a pint of blueberries because I wasn't sure if I would use the other cup of my pint in something else. I put it in a 7X11 pan. Fabulous! So easy to make that I read the recipe 3 times to make sure I wasn't forgetting something. The farmers at my table gave it an A++ so for me, that equals 5 stars! Thanks for sharing.

These turned out a little softer and cake like than I expected. There also wasn't a distinct taste difference between the bottom layer and the top layer. But overall, these were very pleasant and light tasting, a great way to use up blueberries!
