Blueberry Crumb Bars – Fresh blueberries with a hint of lemon zest on top of a buttery crust and sprinkled with golden crumbs.
As you probably know by now, most of my baked goods are made specifically for my co-workers. I love baking (duh.) but there’s no way I could keep all of these goodies at my house. So I take them to work. Since my co-workers are the one’s that eat the majority of the things I make, I like to make things they’ll actually enjoy.
That brings me to this week’s recipe…blueberry crumb bars. My one co-worker (the same one who challenged me to the bake off in the last post, actually) loves anything with blueberry in it. And since I felt bad for beating him so bad in the bake off, I figured I’d make something he’d especially enjoy, as would the rest of the team.
These were pretty yummy. I have to admit…I’m not a huge fan of fruity desserts. But these were so moist and chewy and gooey and….amazing. And the buttery crumb crust and topping didn’t hurt, either. They’re definitely a mess to take out of the pan so make sure you (1) line the pan with parchment paper and (2) you let the bars cool COMPLETELY so they don’t fall apart when you try to take them out of the pan. I didn’t have patience to wait for these to cool so I just let them sit over night. Or if you’re in a rush, put them in the freezer for an hour or so.
