Blueberry Recipe Roundup

Our trip to Tree-Berry Farm in Scituate was another big success this year.  We were lucky to get a nice cool day to go picking, the farm was busy but not too crowded, and we came home with 8 pounds of berries!

The next big question is…. what to make with all these beautiful berries?!  After a few hours on Pinterest, I have more recipes that I can possibly make (but it will be fun trying).  Here are a few ideas…  check out the rest of our pins here.

Lemon Blueberry Bars With Coconut Crust
I spent all morning Sunday on Pinterest. That’s pretty much all you need to know to understand the next couple of posts I have planned. Let’s just say I was REALLY hungry afterward.

These are actually more cake-like than the traditional powdered sugar dusted lemon bars – sort of like lemon brownies (these are actually what inspired me try making my own recipe). If you aren’t a fan of coconut, you could easily omit the crust – just watch the bake time closely. And if you don’t happen to have any blueberries, you could leave those out too. But personally, I think this is the perfect combination of sweet, fresh and tart.

Lemon Blueberry Bars With Coconut Crust

CRUST

1 1/2 CUP FLOUR
¾ CUP FLAKED COCONUT
½ CUP BROWN SUGAR
½ CUP BUTTER, ROOM TEMPERATURE
1 TSP SALT
2 TSP LEMON ZEST

Mix all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until combined. Press into a well-greased 9×13 baking dish. Put it into the fridge while you make the filling.

FILLING

1 CUP FLOUR
1 CUP SUGAR
½ TSP SALT
¾ CUP (1 ½ STICKS) BUTTER, SOFTENED
3 EGGS
ZEST & JUICE OF 2 LEMONS
1 ½ CUPS BLUEBERRIES

In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the flour, sugar, salt, and softened butter until combined.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Pour the lemon mixture into the flour mixture. Beat at medium speed until the batter is smooth and fluffy, about 2 minutes.

Turn off mixer, fold in blueberries by hand. Spread filling over crust. Bake for 40-45 minutes at 350 degrees, until the center is baked through and the edges are lightly browned. Let the bars cool completely before you try to cut them.

GLAZE

ZEST & JUICE OF HALF A LEMON
½ CUP POWDERED SUGAR
2 TABLESPOONS WATER
