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.

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.
