Weekend Recipe: Blueberry Crumb Bars

What an easy dessert!
The recipe can be found here.

The ingredients:
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 3 cups Flour
  • 1 cup Shortening
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 tsp Salt (optional)
  • 1 pinch Ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 4 cups Fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 3 teaspoons Cornstarch

The recipe says that the dough would be crumbly. It sure was!!

I also learned that you should be very gentle when pressing it into the pan. The places that were pressed harder were very hard after being baked.

Other than the hard bottom layer (which was my mistake, not the recipe's), it was very good!! I plan on trying this again with other fruits.
