Spring is the perfect time to enjoy fresh and fruity desserts that complement the season's sunny and breezy vibe. And what could be a better treat than a deliciously tangy Lemon Blueberry Bar with Pure Vanilla? This recipe is a must-try for any dessert lover, especially those who crave the perfect balance between sweet and tart.
Spring is in full swing, and I am celebrating the season with a fresh and zesty treat, lemon blueberry bars with our pure vanilla. They are relatively easy to make and capture the essence of spring.
These bars are bursting with bright, citrusy flavors and sweet blueberries, making them the perfect dessert to serve at a springtime gathering or enjoy as an afternoon snack. Here's a recipe to help you create your own delicious lemon blueberry bars.
For the crust:
- 11/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, soften
For the filling:
- 4 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius) and grease an 8 inch baking dish. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, powdered sugar, and salt for the crust. Add the soften butter and mix until the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Press the crust mixture into the bottom of the greased baking dish and bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden.
In a separate mixing bowl, beat the eggs and sugar together until well combined. Add in the flour, lemon juice, and vanilla extract, and mix until smooth. Gently fold in the fresh blueberries. Pour the filling over the pre-baked crust and bake for an additional 25-30 minutes, or until the filling is set and the edges are golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow the bars to cool to room temperature before cutting into squares.
Enjoy your delicious lemon blueberry bars with a dusting of powdered sugar or as is (they are already delightful). These lemon blueberry bars are the perfect treat to be a crowd-pleaser at any spring gathering or for your tea time snacks.
