Blueberry Buckle Bars

  • Well, it rained almost all day yesterday and the ground is just saturated!  I don’t think it can it can’t take any more water.

    Here in eastern Colorado we only get about 12 inches of moisture each year.  I think we are half way there in one month!!

    In fact, we have so much water sitting around we actually have seagulls in our backyard!!

    My husband had to pull me out of our driveway again this morning so I could take the kids to school and our county road isn’t much better.

    So in hopes for some sunshiny days I made these Blueberry Buckle Bars.  Funny thing about these bars.  I was trying to make more of a blueberry pie bar but the base turned out differently than how I planned.  Don’t get me wrong they are still really good I just couldn’t use the word pie with these.  They turned out to be more like a buckle instead.

    These would make a really good dessert for summer time and pair it with some vanilla ice cream or freshly whipped cream for an extra special treat.
