Oh my goodness- I love making treats with fruit. I love making delicious bar dessert! Check out all my yummy bars here. I wander the produce isle or look in our co-op produce basket & the wheels start turning in my head of all the things I can make. This time I had a pile of blueberries.
Then I found this recipe from Sheena at Hot Eats and Cool Reads. I adapted the recipe to my liking. These were simply divine. This recipe was simple and these Blueberry Pie Bars a snap to make.
