Easy Blueberry Pie Bars

Soft, buttery pecan shortbread, juicy blueberries, and tangy lemon zest come together to create these sweet blueberry pie bars! They're the perfect dessert bars for summer. 

Blueberry pie bars are made with a relatively short list of simple ingredients! Grab those fresh blueberries and let's get started.

Step 1. Combine flour, pecans, and salt in a mixing bowl.

Step 2. Then, beat the butter and confectioners sugar together in a separate bowl.

Step 3. Next, mix in the vanilla, and then slowly beat in the dry flour mixture until the dough forms.

Step 4. Time to assemble these blueberry bars! Start by pressing a little more than half of the shortbread mixture into the bottom of the pan.

Step 5. Top the shortbread dough with fresh blueberries, sugar, and lemon zest. 

Step 6. Then, crumble the rest of the shortbread mixture over the top of the blueberries.

Step 7. Finally, bake the bars for 45-50 minutes, or until they are a nice golden brown.

Let the pan cool completely before slicing the bars, then serve with ice cream if desired!
