This Creamy Blueberry Crumb Bars recipe is just the thing for using up fresh, in-season blueberries! They’re utterly delicious and simple to make!
This year I decided to take my blueberry crumb bars to the next level and make them a little creamy!
– granulated sugar – baking powder – all-purpose flour – cold unsalted butter – large eggs – cream cheese – granulated sugar – Greek yogurt
Total Prep Time: 4h 15m
NOTE: This recipe is quick and easy. It’s also a great recipe to get your kiddos involved. My little one loved helping me press the crust into the pan and crumble the topping.
FOR THE SHORTBREAD CRUST:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line 9 x 13-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving overhang on all sides.
In medium bowl stir together 1 cup sugar, 3 cups flour, baking powder, salt, grated ginger, and lemon zest. Use fork or pastry cutter to mix butter and egg.
FOR THE FILLING:
In bowl of stand mixer, add cream cheese and mix on high until smooth. Then add egg, 1 cup sugar, yogurt, lemon juice, and flour.
Mix on medium until combined and no flour streaks remain, about 1 minute. Gently fold in blueberries, and pour mixture evenly over crust.
Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until top is golden brown and toothpick inserted comes out mostly clean. Move bars to wire rack and cool, about 2 hours.
