Blueberry Crumble Bars


I am sorry for such an empty week of post, but I had a very special uncle pass away this week and I had to go out of town unexpectedly. He was mentally challenged, but he was so special. He has been bed ridden for 14 years and has never been able to speak.  He was  born in a time when  you had a child that had special needs that were just put in a home and forgotten but not my grandmother. She took care of him until the day she died. My uncle then took over responsibility and took care of him. I know that he is okay and is now with his momma so I am not sad. I ask for prayers for my uncle who is having a really hard time because he gave up his whole life to take care of him!   I love you Jerry!

I made these blueberry crumble bars last week with the intention of posting on Monday but you know things happen.  This recipe comes from the free Gooseberry Patch E book that I posted last week on facebook last week.

Blueberry Crumble Bars



1 1/2 cups of sugar divided

3 cups all purpose flour

1 t. baking powder

1/4 t. salt

1/8 t cinnamon

1 c shortening

1 egg, beaten

1 T cornstarch

4 C blueberries

stir Together one cup sugar, flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Use a pastry cutter or  forks to cut in shortening and egg:  Pat half the dough evenly in the bottom of a 9 x13 pan. set aside  In a separate bowl, stir together cornstarch and remaining sugar; gently fold in berries. Sprinkle blueberry mixture evenly over dough, crumble remaining dough over top of blueberries. Bake 375 degrees for  45 minutes .  Cool Completely before cutting into bars ( I know it is hard  to resist but from my own experience please do this). All I can say is yummy.
