Blueberry Pie Bars

These BLUEBERRY PIE BARS are a simple twist on the classic blueberry pie. This bar dessert is perfect for feeding a crowd and it’s loaded with juicy blueberries.

We used to live in a neighborhood with walking trails and the trails had berry bushes lining them.

You can imagine how much we enjoyed berry season – well, aside from the prickly thorns that always got me and the berry stained fingers that lasted for days. 

My favorite berry has always been the raspberry and I still have a hard time baking with them. I have good intentions, but somehow they all make it to my mouth before they make it to the oven. πŸ˜‰ 

Blueberries aren’t my favorite plain though. I love them in things, like these blueberry streusel muffins and this blueberry bread recipe. 

Today, I’m sharing a recipe for blueberry pie bars. They’re a riff on these blackberry pie bars and oh man. Sooooo good – you won’t be able to stop with just one! 

How to make this easy blueberry pie recipe: 

For the dough, you’ll need the basics: flour, sugar, butter, and a pinch of salt.

Add the ingredients to a mixer and beat with the paddle attachment until the dough is coarse and crumbly, a bit like sand.

Press half of the dough into the bottom of a 9×9 baking dish. 

Bake that off for about 10 minutes.

For the filling, you’ll want to whisk together sour cream, eggs, sugar, and flour until combined and then fold in your blueberries. 

Pour that over the baked crust.

Use your hands to grab chunks of the remaining dough and squeeze it together to form chunks. 

I like to form larger chunks, but whatever size streusel-like topping you want is fine here.

Sprinkle the chunks over the pie filling and pop it all in the oven.

This will bake up in about an hour. 

You’ll want to let this cool for an hour or so before cutting into it so that the blueberry juices can settle in and the pie bars don’t crumble apart. 

Go ahead and eat this with your hands or top it off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and go at it with a fork!

My only problem with this recipe is that every time I walk by the pan, I have an irresistible urge to pick a chunk of the dough off the top. I mean, it’s so perfect. How could you resist?? 

I love serving these blueberry pie bars when we have guests – they’re easy to serve since you can eat them with your hands and pie is ALWAYS a hit!
