Recipe by Chris from Kansas
I received this recipe from a co-worker many years ago after she brought these most delicious bars to an event we were having. I have made them many times since and they never fail to please. They take a little while to put together, but the result is worth the effort. You can substitute any flavor pie filling for the blueberry.

I found this a little difficult to get the dough on the top of the bars. It looked great when it finally came out of the oven, but the dough didn't have a lot of flavor. Sorry
