  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Blueberry Topping

  • 4 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tsp cornstarch


  • Heat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon, and baking powder together into a stand mixer bowl. With the whisk attachment, turn the stand mixer on medium speed and add the egg. Continue to mix and drop shortening into the mixer 1 tsp at a time. Continue to mix until the dough is crumbly, after about 1 minute.
  • Place half of the flour mixture into a prepared 9 x 13 baking dish.
  • Combine the sugar and cornstarch into a medium-sized bowl and mix well. Add the blueberries and carefully stir, coating all of the blueberries with the sugar mixture.
  • Add the coated blueberries to the 9 x 13 baking dish. Add the remaining flour mixture over the top of the blueberries.
  • Bake uncovered in the oven for 45-50 minutes until the top has turned a light golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before cutting into squares and serving.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
