I made it for any nephew's return from boot camp. Everyone loved it, even his teenage friends. This one is A keeper!
I substituted strawberry pie filling, as I felt this would appeal to me and my family more, and it was a hit! Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe! It is definitely a keeper :)
This is my go to recipe for potluck dessert. I have also used raspberry pie filling and it is better than the blueberry. If I can find blackberry pie filling I am going to try it with that!
Delicious The sweet taste of blueberry with just a little tang of lemon. I put the glaze in a zip loc bag and snip the corner off to drizzle it on the bars. I make it with homemade filling rather than canned. It's easy and yummy. 3/4 cup of sugar,1/4 cup of cornstarch,1/4 cup water, and 1 and 1/2 cups blueberry. Boil it all for a couple of minutes while stirring . When it turns thick and jelly like it's ready to use
Very good and several people asked me for the recipe!
I have made these bars many times and I have always added a few fresh blueberries to the pie filling, you get much more blueberry flavor and it is so good!!!!I
Rather than using a pie filling, I would like some input as to using fresh blueberries. How would I adjust the recipe for this?
Very tasty and simple to make. I have used many different types of pie filling and loved everyone.
I made this with blueberry pie filling the first time. The cake was a little too thick for the filling...so the 2nd time I made them, I reduced the baking powder to 1 1/2 tsp, omitted the nutmeg and changed the filling to strawberry. Awesome! Cake is moist and the lemon (more of a frosting than a glaze-have to spread it on the bars while warm) complimented the strawberry filling. Perfect for a snack or dessert. Have plans to make this again and use cherry pie filling next.
The cake looked a little dry in the picture, but it's actually a very light cake. It almost tastes like a blueberry muffin, but lighter and sweeter. It could pass for a brunch item, as well as a dessert.
