If you're looking for a crowd-pleasing recipe to share at a BBQ or potluck this summer - stop looking! You've found it! We've got you covered with these Sour Cream Blueberry Pie Bars. They are sweet with a bit of tang and, c'mon - look at them - they are so pretty!
This recipe is my twelve-year-old daughter's favourite thing to bake. It's simple and delicious - so really - everything you're looking for in baking. I'm always trying to aim folks towards recipes like this - that include a generous portion of fruit. If you're going to eat something delicious, why not get some nutrients in there too? Blueberries are packed with vitamins and phytochemicals!
But that's not to say there's no decadence to these bars. This time, we treated ourselves by including Gay Lea’s Gold Premium Sour Cream. Oh, my - this sour cream is unique! It's rich and silky- truly decadent. (It's only available in Ontario, so sadly, many of our readers will need to substitute something else.)
Thankfully, this recipe is really adaptable - so don't you non-Ontarians need not worry - we've made it with Gay Lea's Low Fat AND Fat-Free sour creams with still delicious results - and a bit of a calorie and fat savings over the Gold Premium. (Heck, we've even substituted vanilla yogurt!)
