Don’t you just crave something sweet sometimes? It might be a cookie or a bar or maybe even a candy bar, but it has to be sweet. I find myself making cookies for my boys all the time. There favorite is chocolate chip cookies and Fall Baking Giant Monster Cookies HarvestFun.
I don’t take the time to make the type of dessert or treat that I want to eat. Until today. My favorite desserts don’t contain chocolate or peanut butter, it’s always Lemon or Blueberry. I made some very delicious Blueberry Pie Almond Cookie Bars that hit the spot! These are very similar to Cherry Pie bars, I simply changed up the fruit that went into the bars. I had these for lunch today, serious.
The Blueberry Pie bars turned out really thick and delicious, I only ate a small bar and was full which means that I have a lot to share with neighbors and friends too. I think these pie bars would be perfect for a little brunch and coffee with friends. Yum!
This recipe called for a cake pan which made the bars quite thick, I wonder if making them in a jelly roll pan would work out better next time and make a larger batch of bars.
I think that my boys will even love these cookie bars. That will be the real test!
While I was making these Blueberry Pie bars, I used some cool new utensils from OXO. OXO is donating $100 to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer just for this blog post! I’m so excited to be a part of this amazing campaign that will help all those sick little ones out there.
