  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  2. Start by making the crust. In a medium bowl, stir together the 2 cups flour, 2 tablespoons white sugar, lemon zest and salt. Cut in the 1/2 cup butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Beat egg and vanilla together; stir into the crumb mixture until a dough forms. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden. Remove from oven and set aside to cool slightly.
  4. Sprinkle blueberries over the crust. Combine the 1/4 cup sugar and nutmeg; sprinkle over the blueberries. Make the topping: In a medium bowl, cream together the 5 tablespoons butter and brown sugar until smooth. Mix in the flour, so that the mixture is crumbly like streusel. Sprinkle over the blueberry layer.
  5. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until browned. Cool and then dust with confectioners' sugar before cutting into bars.

Fa-reeking awesome. Tossed a little lemon juice in with the filling and made a thin lemon icing to drizzle over the bars (1 c. confectioners sugar, 1/4 c. softened butter, little salt, fresh lem...

This is a good blueberry recipe. It took abit in making the crust, when forming the dough,you will have to use your hands to combine the ingredients. A utencil will not work. Very good taste, I ...

The Zing of lemon cookie nicely offsets the blueberry filling. Not overly sweet but very delicious. As previous posters have mentioned, the cookie base can be difficult to work with, but I rec...

Used 1/8 tsp of nutmeg and 1/4 tsp cinnamon. Should have only baked the min. amount of time. Used fresh blueberries. Added an extra 2 Tbl. flour for topping due to very high humidity day. Th...

These bars are very tasty! The only thing I did differently was add the juice from half of a lemon along with a 1 tsp of cornstarch to filling. I used my hands to mix up the course crumbs before...

I found this quite easy to assemble, a lot easier than making a pie IMO. I cut the recipe in half, so a pint of blueberries was perfect for an 8x8 pan. Cuz I wanted to really taste the lemon, ...

Yummy! I was in the mood for a pie or something blueberry - this satisfied both cravings. I used a bag of frozen blueberry instead of fresh ones. My husband and 3-year-old loved it, too. We all ...

Good with some extra lemon zest in with the berries based on reviews, I also added an extra cup of (frozen) blueberries and some lemon juice to the crust.

This recipe is pretty good, my only suggestion is to make it in a smaller pan. I found the crust to be very thin, as well as the filling, otherwise, it's really yummy.
