Frosted Blueberry Pie Bars

Let’s face it, pie baking is not for everyone. And that is totally fine. I fell into that category at one point, so I do get it. Pies are complicated endeavors. You’ve got to be invested in the process to make a great pie.  And that’s not so easy, as all elements of a pie matter; the ingredients, the crust, the filling and don’t forget, the topping. Pie-making requires skills, patience, and what I call, good baking judgment.

For those that are pie-challenged, here are my frosted blueberry pie bars and they are the perfect dessert to make when you don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen. Instead of a delicate crust and topping, you have a crumble that works for both. The blueberry filling is a combination of blueberry sauce and berries. And the glaze is an easy way to tie these beautiful fruity bars all together. These blueberry bars are also the perfect prep-ahead, portioned, sweet treats that are ideal for a Memorial Day celebration with friends and family.

In this recipe, I use a combination of fresh and frozen blueberries, so you can actually make these frosted blueberry bars off-season as well, without sacrificing a thing. My older son described these as a more elegant pop tart. My younger son said served warm is was just like eating a slice of pie, possibly better. I myself enjoyed them for breakfast with a cup of coffee. No matter what your preference, these blueberry pie bars should be added to your must-bake list right now.

    Can you use canned pie filling instead?

    1. Hi Linda. Thanks for reaching out. The honest answer is, I am not sure. Believe it or not, I have never used canned pie filling before. I am slightly concerned it would not be thick enough, but it’s possible it could work. Do lmk of you try it this way I would be curious to hear how it goes.-Andrea
