Classic blueberry pie is one of my all-time favorite summer desserts. However for picnics and parties, sometimes you need a treat that’s a little more user-friendly.

Like a hand-held version of blueberry pie… Yet with a decadent cookie crust, and gooey blueberry center.

Today’s fresh Gooey Blueberry Cookie Bars are just the treat to usher us into berry season.

I made a simple buttery shortbread cookie crust with lime and orange zest to punch up the flavor.

Then I made a sweet blueberry filling with fresh blueberries, sweetened condensed milk, and cornstarch. The filling has a thick texture that sets up nicely when the Gooey Blueberry Cookie Bars cool.

To assemble, simply press a little over half the dough into the bottom of a baking dish. Pour the blueberry filling over the top and drop little pinches of the remaining dough over the surface.

Then bake the Gooey Blueberry Cookie Bars until the top is golden.

It’s important to let the Gooey Blueberry Cookie Bars cool and set after baking… You don’t want all the filling to run out when you cut them.
