Red, White, & Blueberry Blondies Recipe


Independence Day in the US is a huge holiday, and there are always tons of “Red, White, & Blueberry” recipes to serve at the traditional barbecues and backyard get-togethers. The UK and several other nations also use those colors, so even though the following recipe for Red, White & Blueberry Blondies is great for the 4th of July in the US, it’s also a great recipe for anyone to serve wherever they live. Even if your country has different colors, these bars are delicious and worth serving. They are great for a backyard barbecue during the summer, great to take to a potluck or picnic; in fact, they are a welcome treat anytime.

These moist and delicious bars, which are actually blonde brownies with a layer of jam topped with berry studded cheesecake, can be made a day or so ahead; covered tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerated, they will keep well for several days.
