Blueberry Pie Bars

These blueberry pie bars are the epitome of perfect summer days. Nothing beats a sweet berry dessert for the end of a day spent outside.

A soft, sweet dough with folds of sweet blueberry pie filling and vanilla glaze make them a perfect summer treat.

Pie Bars

You can make the pie bars with a homemade blueberry pie filling, or take a shortcut and use canned pie filling. The canned filling works great too.

Pie Bars have become a favorite over the years. Vanilla Glazed Cherry Pie Bars taste like a cross between muffins and cherry pie.

Pie Bars are always moister the second day after baking when stored tightly covered. Whenever possible, I make them a day ahead of when I plan to serve them.

These Peach Pie Bars satisfy my summer cravings for fresh peaches like not many other things can do. However you make them, pie bars are a treat!

Easy Blueberry Desserts

This No Bake Blueberry Cheesecake is another easy blueberry dessert that everyone enjoys. And Blueberry Lime Quick Bread gets rave reviews as well every time I make it.

The Stovetop Berry Crisp is spectacular when served warm with a cold scoop of ice cream on top, as are these Blueberry Crumb Bars.

Blueberry Pie Bar Recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Cream the butter and sugar together in a large bowl. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir until combined.
  2. Grease a 10 x 15-inch baking pan. Reserve 1½ cup of batter, spread the rest on the bottom of the greased baking pan. Spread with blueberry pie filling. I like to use a bit more than 20 ounces if I have it.
  3. Using a teaspoon, dollop on the reserved batter in drops. Bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes or until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Do not over-bake.
  4. Let cool. To make the glaze, beat the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and enough milk to form a smooth consistency. Drizzle on cooled bars. Cut and serve. These are better the second day as the batter absorbs some of the moisture from the pie filling.
Blueberry Pie Bars are a huge hit with everyone!

    Do you think adding some lemon zest might brighten up the flavor? If so, how much do you think? My granddaughter asked me for a picnic dessert recipe and I had this in my must do recipes! Thank you.
