blueberry crumble bars

as promised here is the recipe for the blueberry crumble bars i made.
i actually had a frozen berry mix that i used instead of just fresh blueberries. it was delicious nonetheless. the original recipe came from here

here is what you'll need:

1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks or 8 ounces)
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon salt
Zest and juice of one lemon
4 cups fresh blueberries (i used frozen)
1/2 cup white sugar
4 teaspoons cornstarch

9x13 pan (greased)
oven at 375F 

in a bowl, mix together the cup of sugar, the 3 cups flour, the baking powder, salt and lemon zest.  blend in the butter and egg. dough will be crumbly. 
in another bowl mix together the fruit, 1/2 cup of sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice.

 press half of dough into the prepared pan.



add fruit and top with the remaining half of dough. 
bake for 45 minutes. when top has turned golden brown remove from oven and let cool completely before cutting.
tastes extra yummy warmed up with some vanilla ice cream on the side.
