    Recipe Introduction

    This is a burn-the-midnight-oil baking sort of recipe. You can use all blueberries and the bigger amount of the cornstarch if you prefer more gelatinous fillings (rather than a tad loose)
    List of Ingredients

    List of Ingredients

    Blueberry Squares Deluxe


    1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
    1 1/2 cups old fashioned oatmeal
    3/4 cup brown sugar
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 cup unsalted butter, in chunks


    3 cups blueberries or 2 cups blueberries and 1 cup raspberries
    3/4 cup sugar
    2-3 tablespoons cornstarch
    1 tablespoon lemon juice or apple syrup


    Butter a 7 by 11 inch baking pan. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

    Put the flour, oatmeal, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a food processor and pulse to blend, about 20 seconds. Add the butter and pulse to cut the butter into the dry ingredients until you have a crumbly mass - not dry but not sticking altogether.

    Toss the berries in a bowl with the sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice.

    Spread or pat half of oatmeal mixture into pan. Spread on berries and sugar/cornstarch mixture.

    Top, as evenly as you can, with remaining oatmeal mixture and press slightly. Chill 30 minutes.

    Preheat oven to 350 F. Bake 30-40 minutes until fruit starts to bubble. Cool in pan very well before cutting or refrigerate 2-3 hours before cutting.

    14-20 squares
