Equipment

  • 9×13 pan
  • Spoons
  • Spatulas
  •  Bowls
  • Pastry cutter or 2 butter knives

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour can use GF 1-1 baking mix
  • 1 ½ cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup butter chilled and cut into cubes

FILLING

  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 cups fresh blueberries at room temperature

Instructions

MAKE THE CRUST

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Let’s prepare the pan, by spraying a 9×13 pan with nonstick spray and if you like, line with parchment as well
  • In a large mixing bowl whisk together graham crumbs, flour, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder and salt
  • In a smaller mixing bowl, whisk together egg and vanilla until frothy
  • Next up let’s combine it all. Add your egg + vanilla, your cold cubes of butter and your flour mixture together, then “cut it” with a pastry cutter or 2 butter knives, until it’s like coarse crumbles.
  • USE HALF, SAVE HALF: Press 1/2 of the mixture evenly into the prepared baking dish.

PREP THE FILLING

  • In the bowl we just emptied, whisk the sugar and cornstarch, then stir in the lemon juice and add blueberries and toss together
  • In an even layer add the blueberries to the crust, then sprinkle the rest of the topping and bake about 35 minutes
  • We are looking for golden brown, with blueberries beginning to be a little oozy. They can be a little jiggly in the center, but we want them “set”. Let them fully cool before we even think of cutting them
