Our three sons like these bars so much that after they were married, each of my daughters-in-law asked for the recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1-3/4 cups sugar
  • 4 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (21 ounces) blueberry pie filling
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • GLAZE:
  • 1-1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture just until combined.
  2. Spread half of the batter into a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Spread with pie filling; sprinkle with nutmeg. Drop remaining batter by teaspoonfuls over the top.
  3. Bake until golden brown, 40-45 minutes. In a small bowl, combine glaze ingredients until smooth. Drizzle over warm bars. Cool completely on a wire rack.
