Blueberry Crumble Bars
Blueberry Crumble Bars


1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp baking powder
3 cups all-purpose flour
½ tsp Fleur de Sel
Zest of one lemon
2 sticks cold, unsalted butter, cut into chunks
1 large egg, beaten
½ cup Lemon Sugar
Juice of one lemon
2 tsp Tahitian Cookie Extract
1/2 tsp Pure Lemon Extract
4 tsp cornstarch
4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

These sweet-tart crumble bars have a buttery short crust with just the perfect little salty pop. We bring a duo of extracts – Tahitian Cookie Extract and Pure Lemon Extract – to heighten the flavor from the blueberries. Bake up a batch, then steep a cup of our Blues Fest Green Tea, and you’ll definitely be singing the blues—in a good way!

1.Preheat oven to 375°F degrees.
2.Place the sugar, baking powder, flour, Fleur de Sel and lemon zest in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse to combine. Add in half of the butter chunks and the egg. Pulse to combine. Add in the remaining butter and pulse until a ball of dough comes together. Divide in half and set aside.
3.In a bowl, combine the Lemon Sugar, lemon juice, extracts, cornstarch and blueberries. Allow to sit for 15 minutes.
4.Grease a 9X13 pan. Press ½ of the short crust into the bottom of the pan. Pour the blueberry filling over the crust. Crumble the remaining short crust over the filling.
5.Bake for 45 minutes or until the top is lightly brown. Cool completely before cutting—we found it easiest to cut them after they were chilled.
