"This has to be one of the best recipes for blueberry squares... taken my "Favorite Summertime Recipes" folder! You may use all blueberries, and the larger amount of cornstarch, if you prefer a more "gelatinous" filling, rather than a bit loose. If you follow directions carefully, you will have the most fantastic blueberry squares... I promise! Don't forget, chill for 30 minutes before baking! Please, do the crust only in the processor otherwise it will not have good results! Prep time includes chilling time of 30 minutes. Even better...use 2 cups blueberries with 1 cup raspberries if desired!"

"OMG these are fantastic. My DH loves blueberry bars and he says these are the best so far. thank you so much for posting."
"These are fantastic. I followed the recipe exactly. They are in the freezer now waiting for me to take them to work this week. I snuck a small piece out of the pan while they were warm and I just swooned. If eaten when warm, they taste like an excellent blueberry crisp. I can only imagine how wonderful they would be with a scoop of ice cream."
"My husband loves everything blueberry and these were definitely a hit. I made in a 9x13 glass baking dish and there was plenty of crust and topping to fill the pan; baked for 30 minutes. I used almost 4 cups of fresh blueberries, 3 T cornstarch and reduced the white sugar to 1/2 cup which resulted in just the right amount of sweetness. We enjoyed these with vanilla ice cream. Thank you for the recipe."
"Made of the Feb 09 I RED-commend tag: Kitten - these bars are outstanding!! I took them to my daughter's scout meeting - they were a hit!!"
"These are a fantastic little bar. With the exception of the middle few bars that didn't set up. (DH ate these as a blueberry crisp with vanilla ice-cream:-). No worries as they taste fantastic. I agree with your forward in that you must use a food processor. Quite a large one in fact because if it's too small you'll have a real mess on your hands. I too upped the amount of cinnamon as a previous reviewer had stated and also used the full 3 T. of cornstarch. This would make a delicious blueberrycrisp if you opted to lessen the cornstarch amount or entirely. A wonderful keeper recipe Kitt... Made for ZaarStars~"
"Incredibly good for an easy recipe. I used 1/2 margarine and 1/2 butter, and frozen blueberries, and it still came out fabulously. My husband doesn't generally like blueberries and he loved them. Thank you Kittencal!"
"This is one of the best blueberry recipes I have ever had, it is great, vert tasty"
"These tasted great but mine didn't solidify into bars, it ended up more like a loose crisp. I would also add an extra tsp. cinnamon because i think the topping needed extra oomph!"
"Fantastic! I made them as printed, using 3 tablespoons of cornstarch and I added 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg to the crust/topping. This is a great recipe. Thanks, Kitten!"
"Delicious!!!! These were SO good. I made one batch, and they were so good I made a second because I knew the first wouldn't last. Very similar to Starbucks Organic Blueberry Bar, but better. I used frozen berries and they turned out great. Nothing in this recipe needs to be changed. Thanks again Kittencal!"
"These were a very different bar dessert. For ease I give them 5 star. For taste I give them a 4 star, but that is mostly because I was expecting more of a pie like taste. So to me they round up to a 5. Thanks for the treat Kitten."
"I realized that I do not have an 11 x 7 inch pan and used one that was a little larger with excellent results. Mixing these in the food processor makes it so easy to prepare these wonderful bars. The berries were frozen, I used the full amount of cornstarch, and reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup. They are so yummy. "
"EXCELLENT! great blueberry squares, you did not specify fresh or frozen, so I made this with fresh blueberries, I think though any recipe is better using fresh berries. Thank you for another great recipe!"
