Blueberry Crumble Bars



Blueberry Crumble Bars


These bars are not for anyone on a diet! Brought these to work for our weekly “Fun Friday” event and they were a complete hit. Try with your favorite jam or preserve flavor.

Ingredients:

Crust:
1 C. (2 sticks) butter, melted
2 C. Flour
½ t. Salt

Filling:
1 ½ C. Blueberry Jam

Crumble Topping:
2 ¼ C. Flour
1 ½ C. Dark Brown Sugar
1 C. (2 sticks) butter, cut into small pieces
¼ t. Cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

To make the crust – Melt the butter in the microwave. In a large bowl, add the melted butter to the flour. Stir and it will be a dough consistency.

Spread evenly into a well greased 9 x 13 inch rectangle baking pan. (I use the spray with flour in it.) Bake the crust for 15 to 20 minutes until lightly brown. Remove and cool for about 30 minutes.

To prepare the topping, mix the flour and dark brown sugar. Cut the butter into small cubes and add to the mixture. Use either a pastry cutter or your hands, to cut the butter into the mixture to resemble coarse crumbs.

When the crust is cool, gently spread the blueberry jam over the crust. Pour the crumble topping over the top and spread evenly. Press gently.

Bake for 15 to 18 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool to room temperature, or overnight, before cutting. Recommend using a very sharp knife to get clean cut bars.
