Blueberry Lattice Bars Recipe

Since our area has an annual blueberry festival, my daughters and I are always looking for great new berry recipes to enter in the cooking contest. These lovely yummy bars won a blue ribbon one year. —Debbie Ayers, Baileyville, Maine
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling Bake: 30 min. + cooling YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/3 cups butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • FILLING:
  • 3 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch

Directions

  • 1. Cream butter, sugar and salt until light and fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually beat in flour. Divide dough in half; shape each into a 1-in.-thick rectangle. Wrap in plastic; refrigerate 2 hours or overnight.
  • 2. Preheat oven to 375°. Place blueberries, sugar and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently; cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes. Cool slightly.
  • 3. Roll each portion of dough between two sheets of plastic wrap into a 14x10-in. rectangle. Place rectangles on separate baking sheets; freeze until firm, 5-10 minutes. Place one rectangle in a greased 13x9-in. baking pan, pressing onto bottom and about 1/2-in. up the sides. Add filling.
  • 4. Cut remaining rectangle into 1/2-in. strips; freeze 5-10 minutes to firm. Arrange strips over filling in crisscross fashion. If desired, press edges with a fork to seal strips. Bake until top crust is golden brown, 30-35 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Yield: 2 dozen.

"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."

"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."
