“We enjoyed these bars - a bit of work to make them but they are worth it. Recipe Source: Finnish cookbook”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make the crust: sift the dry ingredients (flour - baking soda) into a mixing bowl. Using a fork or two knives mix the butter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. With your hands press mixture into a dough. Roll dough out on a floured board to fit a 12-x 16 inch pan (I used a roasting pan), reserving 1/2 cup of the dough to use for topping. Put crust in pan, patch it if need be.
  2. With your fingers, form a ridge around the edge of the dough so the filling will not run over during baking.
  3. To prepare filling: pour the blueberries into a mixing bowl, mashing a bit to produce juice. Stir in the remainder of the ingredients (sugar - salt). Spread filling over crust in pan.
  4. Roll out reserved dough on a floured board to 1/8 to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into strips and place in a lattice pattern on the filling -- or crumble remainder over the filling. Sprinkle with additional sugar if desired (these bars are not very sweet).
  5. Bake in a pre-heated 375 degree oven for 25 - 30 minutes.
  6. Cut into squares to serve.
