Guest Blogger~ Moore or Less Cooking Blog Blueberry Raspberry Bars

Hi everyone,

I'm Nettie, the cook, baker, photographer and designer behind Moore or Less Cooking Food Blog. When I'm not busy creating, adapting and testing recipes, I enjoy reading, traveling, and outdoor activities. My true passion is food and design. Today I'd like to share a wonderful recipe with you for Blueberry Raspberry Bars.

These bars are like a Blueberry- Raspberry – better – than- Pie- Dream!  These are better than pie because it is half the work of making a pie and all the flavor of summer.

Blueberry Raspberry Bars
Moore of Less Cooking Blog

1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp baking powder
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup cold, unsalted butter, cut into cubes
1 egg
1/4 tsp salt
zest from one lemon

2 Tbsp lemon juice
4 cups blueberries/raspberries (whatever proportions your prefer)
2/3 cup granulated sugar
4 tsp cornstarch

 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and grease a 9×13 inch pan. 
 For the crust, in a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup sugar, 3 cups of flour, and 1 tsp baking powder.

 Mix in salt and lemon zest.  Using a  fork, blend in egg and butter.   Press half of the dough into the pan to form the crust.  

In another bowl, stir together 2/3 cups sugar, lemon juice, and corn starch.  Fold in strawberries and blackberries.  Spread the berries over the crust.  add remaining dough over the top of the berries.

 Bake for 45 minutes until top is lightly brown.  Cool completely.  Makes up to 24 bars.
