Amazing Shortbread Blueberry Pie Bars

by Nellie

These incredible blueberry pie bars are made with fresh blueberries and are so delicious! Perfect with a side of vanilla ice cream or on it’s own!

You have had blueberry pie in the past, but have you ever had Blueberry Pie Bars? There is no doubt that you’ve had blueberry pie in almost every form.

It comes in pop tarts, toaster strudels, coffee cake, and even waffles. However, this time it’s different because we are creating something known as Blueberry Pie Bars. These bars are homemade and an excellent treat to make for your family. 

Blueberry Pie Bars

It may be easier to go to the store and buy a box of your favorite bars. However, it’s always a little healthier to make your own and almost always cheaper.

Plus, these bars are freezable, so you can easily pull them out of the freezer and enjoy them whenever you like. These bars taste delicious whether they’re room temperature or warm. They are low maintenance and very enjoyable! 

How to Freeze Blueberry Pie Bars

Once you have made these delicious bars, you may be wondering HOW you can freeze them. I am going to let you in on a little secret.

My favorite way to freeze these bars is to wrap them up individually. This works better because then you have bars for on the go and nothing goes to waste. Just make sure you are double wrapping the bars in aluminum foil and plastic wrap.

This will keep them safe from the elements in your freezer. You can leave them out to unthaw and enjoy. 

If you like WARM treats like me, you can warm these Blueberry Pie Bars up in the microwave. From there, you can add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to them.

Of course, this is being extra, but it’s totally worth it and so enjoyable! This recipe creates a super yummy treat that the whole family can enjoy. What’s your favorite part of this recipe?
