Pie is my husbands favorite dessert. Sadly, I don’t know that I’ve ever made him one….bad wife confession! I have purchased him pies, does that redeem me at all? Well I saw this recipe and thought that it would be pretty easy, AND I had a great cause to make it – our weekly small group! Needless to say these bars went over VERY well, and we didn’t come home with too many leftovers. Brian very much liked them. YAY!
Blueberry Pie Bars
Crust & Topping:
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/8 tsp salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, chilled.
2 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup greek yogurt
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp almond extract
16 oz fresh blueberries
1.Heat oven to 350′. Grease an 8×8 – inch pan with non-stick cooking spray; set aside.
2. For the crust, combine the flour, sugar and salt in a food processor. Cut the butter into 1/2 inch pieces and add to flour mixture. Process until the butter is evenly distributed but the mixture is still crumbly.
3. Reserve 1 1/2 cups of the mixture for the topping; set aside. Press the remaining mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan.
4. For the filling: whisk eggs in a large bowl, then add the sugar, yogurt, flour and almond extract. Gently fold in blueberries. Spoon the filling over the crust and sprinkle the reserved topping mixture evenly over the filling.
5. Bake 45-55 minutes or until the top turns golden brown. Cool 1 hour before cutting and serving, or serve out of pan cobbler style.
