surprise, surprise, surprise... happy birthday!

mr. ronaldo turned 33 over the weekend
and drug my ass camping in 107 degree weather.
i kept trying to explain that i don't complain (as much)
if we would go camping in the fall.
no one listens.
so although there wasn't singing, balloons and presents
there was a cake.
i figured it was the least i could do,
and while my bday cake would consist of
chocolate, peanut butter and marshmallow fluff
ronnie wants fruit.
so i found this recipe off pinterest,
blueberry pie bars:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 sticks butter, chilled
fruit filling
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • pinch salt
  • zest of lemon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 2 cups blueberry pie filling 
to make the crust and topping, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.

combine the flour, sugar, and salt.  mix.  cut the butter into 1/2-inch cubes and add to the flour mixture.  mix until the butter is evenly distributed but the mixture is still crumbly.
reserve 1 1/2 cups of the mixture to use as the topping.  press the remaining mixture into the bottom of the pan and bake 12-15 minutes.  cool for at least 10 minutes.

to make the filling, whisk the eggs in a large bowl, then add the sugar, sour cream, flour, salt, lemon zest, and vanilla extract. pour the berry mixture over the crust.  sprinkle the remaining crust mixture evenly over the filling, and bake for 55 minutes.

happy birthday to my mister!

ps- did anyone get the cinderella reference in the title?  oh gus gus.
