Blueberry Pie Bars recipe on Platter Talk

What are these?

We have nearly 30 blueberry recipes here on Platter Talk and with this easy batch of blueberry pie bars, we are delighted to add one more to the fold.

Loose blueberries on white backgroundGrowing up on our Mennonite farm, my beautiful mom would make the pie-making process look as easy as, well, pie. In fact, it wasn’t uncommon for her to make one or two pies. Every. Day. Maybe some of that rubbed off on me as we’ve featured a fair number of pie recipes here on Platter Talk. Still, not everyone wants to go through the process of making a pie and that’s where this recipe for blueberry pie bars comes into the picture and onto your dessert table.


  • Butter
  • Flour
  • Sugar
  • Eggs
  • Cinnamon
  • Vanilla extract
  • Corn starch
  • Lemon juice
  • Salt
  • Blueberries!

As a small boy, I spent many summer days with an old pant can tied around my waste that was secured by a belt of  bailer twine, picking wild blueberries in the foothills of New York state’s Adirondack mountains. If you’re not fortunate enough to have access to wild blueberries from the wilds of nature, organic ones from your grocer or local farmers market will work just fine.

Blueberry Pie Bars with Ice Cream

In my humble opinion (or IMHO as my sister has taught me to say), any blueberry dessert is not 100% complete without the addition of one key accompaniment. Of course, I am referring to vanilla ice cream, and French vanilla ice cream if you want to be exact.

I grew up with the notion that cheese is mandatory with apple pie and the same rule holds true with the blueberry version, only with ice cream. Call me crazy but I call it love. With or without a scoop of the cold and creamy white stuff on top, you’re going to love these blueberry pie bars. This, I promise.  – Dan

  • 1 tbsp flour, all purpose
  • 2 tbsp corn starch
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

for the crust

  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray a 9 x 11" baking dish with non-stick coating and then line with parchment paper that hangs over the sides of the dish. Apply a coating of non-stick spray to the parchment paper.
