If you are looking for the best blueberry lemon bars recipe ever - then you have come to the right place! I made these the other day and I had to end up giving most of them away to resist the temptation to eat the entire pan myself!
I love lemon. I love everything about lemons. I love the taste of lemons. I love the smell of lemons when I am cooking - I love the smell of lemon rinds being ground up in the garbage disposal. I even love everything that you can do with lemon essential oils.
And then there are blueberries....chock-full of sweetness and antioxidents, they are the perfect counterbalance to the wonderful sourness of the lemons. Mmmmm....blueberries!
Ok - I may need a moment. (tick tock, tick tock). Alrighty...moment over!
With summer here, these 2 of my favorite fruits are at their peak of flavor and incredibly cheap. I just love making lemon bars and my mother has a great recipe for them that is just so stinkin' easy....so I just added some blueberries to her recipe and they turned out fabulous! My mother usually dusts the top of her lemon bars with some powdered sugar but I found that, with the addition of the blueberries, this lemon blueberry bars recipe doesn't need any powdered sugar. They have enough sweetness all on their own!
