Blueberry Lime Bars

I was watching Kids Baking Championship and saw these 11 year olds make Lemon Bars BFF which is adding a fruit that compliments the lemon. A few of them made a fruit coulis to top the lemon bar. Coulis is a thick sauce made from puréed fruit or vegetables. I’m like 50+ years behind their baking knowledge. So, I’m going to attempt this Blueberry Lime Bar. I’m not going to make a blueberry coulis, but incorporate the berries into the filling. I’ll also make a post on a lemon bar with a coulis topping. Wish me luck.


2/3 cup softened butter
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt

2 cups frozen blueberries
3/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup lime juice + 2 teaspoons lime zest
3 egg whites
2/3 cup flour
Pinch of salt


Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9x9 baking dish with parchment paper. With a hand mixer whisk the butter and the sugar. Then add in the vanilla and salt. Add the flour while you are whisking. Pour the dough in the baking dish and press it out evenly. Bake for 25 minutes.

Thaw blueberries in the microwave then pour them in a blender to liguidfy. Transfer liquid to a bowl. Zest and juice your limes. Add to the bowl along with the rest of the ingredients, stir to combine. Pour over crust and bake another 25 minutes. Let cool in the refrigerator for 4 hours or if you are in a hurry put it in the freezer. Yum Yum
