These sweet Blueberry Crumb Bars are going to hit the spot! If you love blueberries and shortbread this is your new favorite dessert. We could have killed this 9×13 dish in 1 day but we wanted everyone to try these bars first. Everyone loved them. Some even had seconds or took one to go.

The best kitchen tool for this recipe is your hands. So wash them! Once you get the dough made use your hands to scoop out half of the dough and press the dough into the 9×13 baking dish with your fingers to make the crust. When you make the blueberry mixture use your hands to toss the blueberries in the cornstarch and sugar. Spread the blueberry mixture evenly with your hands. There will be some sugar and cornstarch remaining in the bowl. Pour it in your hand and sift with through your fingers to sprinkle over the top of the blueberries. Do the same with the remaining dough. Sprinkle the crumbs evenly using your hands.

During blueberry season we go a little overboard with EVERYTHING BLUEBERRIES. And picking fresh blueberries at a local farm is pure family fun. Before you go picking be sure to read my tips on how to freeze blueberries.┬áIt will save you from ruining your blueberries or having them go bad before you get to use them up. Plus you can toss some frozen berries in for breakfast smoothie. And we can’t forget the blueberry muffins! Blueberries in baked goods are my weakness.
