Blueberry Lemon Squares

16 06 2011

I have always been a fan of lemon squares and when I saw this recipe I thought it would be a perfect match, blueberries and lemon squares. Of course I was right and this recipe didn’t disappoint. Not to much lemon flavor but just enough to compliment the blueberries. Enjoy!

Blueberry Lemon Squares

For the crust:

~ 1 cup butter, softened

~ cup powdered sugar

~ tsp. vanilla extract

~ 2 cups flour

For the filling:

~ 1/2 cup sugar

~ 3 Tbsp. flour

~ juice and zest of 1 lemon

~ 1/8 tsp. salt

~ 3 eggs

~ 2 cups fresh or frozen unsweetened blueberries

1. Pre-heat the oven to 400o F. To make the crust, coat a 9 inch square baking dish with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer on low to beat together the butter, powdered sugar and vanilla until fluffy. Add the flour and beat just until the mixture forms small crumbs.

2. Place about two-thirds of the crumb mixture evenly over the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Set the remaining mixture aside. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Reduce the oven to 350o F.

3. Meanwhile, make the filling. In a medium bowl, mix the sugar, flour, lemon zest and salt. Add the eggs and lemon juice, then whisk until smooth. Spread the blueberries in an even layer over the crust.

4. Pour the filling over the blueberries. Sprinkle the reserved crumb mixture evenly over the top. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the crumb topping is golden and the filling is puffed. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely. Cut into squares.
