  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp ice water
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon. Using a pastry blender, cut in cold butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix in egg yolk and ice water and continue blending until well combined.
    Press 3/4 of the mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 9-inch square baking dish. Scatter blueberries over the crust. Crumble the remaining dough over the blueberries and bake until golden, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting into bars.
