Ingredients
  • Crust:
  • Nonstick cooking spray, for pan
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, chilled
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • Filling:
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 heaping cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups blueberries
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Line the pan with parchment paper so that it hangs over on two sides. Spray the parchment.

  • For the crust: In the bowl of a food processor, combine the butter, sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Process until the mixture starts to come together and clump, 1 minute. Remove 3/4 cup and reserve; press the remaining crust mixture evenly into the prepared baking pan. Set aside.

  • For the filling: In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, sour cream, sugar, lemon juice, flour, cornstarch, vanilla extract and cinnamon until smooth. Mix in 1 cup of the blueberries. Pour the filling mixture over the crust, shaking the pan gently to settle the custard and berries. Pour the remaining 1 cup blueberries over the top, spreading them evenly.

  • Take the reserved crust and sprinkle it over the top of the berries, squeezing the mixture in your hands to encourage large lumps.

  • Bake for 1 hour. Let cool. Remove the bars from the pan and cut into 9 pieces. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
