glazed blueberry cake bars.



My new favorite blueberry dessert. Moist, soft, sweet, and oh-so-delicious. These I simply cannot get over. I literally have to restrain myself from the pan. I am sending them to work with Grant tomorrow because if I don't, I'll eat the whole pan!

This recipe couldn't be easier- mix up the dough and pour all except 1.5 cups into a lined pan (I used a 9"x13" one). Bake for 15 minutes. Now create your filling: blueberries and sugar. Mash, mash, mash. Take the pan out and pour your blueberry filling over baked dough. Spoonful by spoonful, pour your reserved dough over the blueberry filling. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Let it cool for about 10 minutes. During this time, make your glaze: powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk. After 10 minutes, you can drizzle all that yummy glaze over your cake. And you're done! Enjoy the delicious masterpiece you just created :)
