Lemon Blueberry Squares



Lemon Blueberry Squares

From Charlotte's House B&B, Bolton, MA



Ingredients
1/2 c. butter, melted
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. lemon extract
1 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 c. fresh or frozen blueberries
1 Tbsp. flour (for blueberries)
confectioner's sugar (for dusting on top)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Grease an 8"x8" square pan

Mix the sugar into the melted butter. Add the eggs and mix well.
Add the extract and mix in.
Add the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Mix well.
Toss the 1 Tbsp flour over the blueberries, then gently mix the flour and berries into the batter. Pour into prepared pan, spreading out evenly.
Bake until top is golden brown, about 25 minutes if using fresh berries, or 35-40 minutes if using frozen berries.
Cool completely.
Sift confectioner's sugar over the top and cut into squares.


These will keep 2-3 days covered.


Although it will be hard to keep them around that long!




Just be sure to hide one for yourself!

  4. HI Christine, Thank you! I think the photos came out quite by accident, as I have no expertise whatsoever! But I appreciate the praise! he he!

    The wee plant is - get ready for this - a Scottish Heather! I think you were drawn to it, just because it looked so familiar! I bought it so tiny, and now it is growing a little bit, so I brought it in to admire for a couple of days. xx
