Reviews for Blueberry Lattice Bars
"Pretty good recipe. I used frozen blueberries bc it's winter and they are cheaper but next time I will use fresh and tart blueberries and I think I'll have a better, stronger tasting bar."
"I put some crunchy sugar crystals on the top! They looked so fancy!"
"Very good, cookie like dough. I rolled the dough out between two pieces of parchment, that made it much easier to handle. Would definitely make this again."
"Lhad to keep the lattice top really cold or it broke as I tried to weave."
