On a personal dessert kick currently. This blueberry crumb bar was tart, but sweet and satisfying. Eating it warm out of the oven was the best part. Watching the blueberries slowly bubble over through the oven door captivated me like a ten year old blowing up marshmallow peeps in the microwave (you all did it!) Will definitely make again, maybe even full size to share! Maybe.
