Blueberry Bars

Easy and Delicious
Preheat Oven to 375
Pastry Mix:
1.5 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Cup Whole Wheat Pastry  Flour
1/2 Cup Almonds, Walnuts or Pecans
1 Cup Sugar
2 Sticks Butter
Zest of One Lemon
1 Large Egg
Place all ingredients except the egg in the bowl of a food processor with the blade attachment and pulse to combine.  Add the egg.  Blend until well mixed.  Dough will be mealy.
Press 1/2 of the mix in a 16x9 greased pan.
3 cups frozen thawed blueberries (or use fresh), juice of one lemon, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon corn starch.  Mix the filling in a large bowl and then spread evenly in the pan.   Crumble the other half of the pasty on top and bake for about 45-60 minutes until top is nice and golden brown.   Cool before slicing.  I get about 12 big squares.
These bars are great for breakfast or for dessert with a little whipped cream on top.
You could make them a bit healthier by decreasing some of the sugar and using all whole wheat pastry flour.  I like the texture of mixing the whole wheat and all purpose.
