Ive' been preparing these blueberry squares for more than 10 years now, and everyone looks forward to them. The recipe looks time-consuming, but it's not difficult at all. -Mary Arkoetty of Huntington, Massachusetts

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2-1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
  • 1-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats, divided
  • 8 tablespoons cold butter, divided
  • 1/4 cup egg substitute
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch. Gradually whisk in water and lemon juice until smooth. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Stir in blueberries. Cook and stir for 2 minutes longer or until thickened and bubbly. Remove from the heat; set aside.
  2. In a bowl, combine the cake mix and 1 cup oats. Cut in 6 tablespoons butter until crumbly. Set aside 1 cup crumb mixture for topping. Stir egg substitute into remaining crumb mixture.
