These blueberry pie bars stem from my secret love for canned pie fillings! It’s kinda weird, I know but it must come from my childhood when my mom used to make Cherry ChaCha all the time for dessert. That cherry pie filling dessert is still one of my very favorites to this day, even though I haven’t eaten it in years.

Blueberry Pie Bars – A Pie Filling Recipe

Do you remember Cherry ChaCha? Maybe that’s a good recipe for me to put in my cookbook. It reminds me of my childhood SO much. It was also a favorite of Mike’s in our early years of marriage, my mom used to make it for him all the time, but now he gets a store-bought pumpkin pie instead.Poor Mike.

These blueberry pie bars were fast, easy and simple to make, which is something that we all need this time of year. It also makes a large pan of bars, making it perfect to take to a party or feed a large family at the end of a meal.

The crust is basically a sweet, non-rising dough done in two layers with blueberry pie between those cake layers. Add on my Buttery Vanilla Glaze and you have one delicious dessert. It’s not a super sweet dessert, which I loved. I might have had a piece for breakfast the next day…I’m not admitting anything.It might have inspired me to try to make a cherry breakfast cake for the holiday’s….it hasn’t happened yet…but it’s coming, I am sure!

I love that excepting maybe the blueberry pie filling, I am certain that you have all the ingredients for these blueberry pie bars in your pantry or cupboards. I would bet however, that you do have a can of pie filling, whether it’s apple, cherry or whathaveyou and you can certainly sub in any pie filling that you like in this!

Happy Baking everyone!

Love you more than chocolate,

  1. What size is a serving , also these look perfect for my diabetic fiance not too sweet but they should help for low blood sugar, also I haven’t baked them yet but I’ll post a rating once I do and we try them

  2. So what is a serving you didnt mention how many to cut this into, either way they look great and doesn’t look overly sweet which is perfect for my diabetic fiance

    I’m curious if there is a change in the recipe to accommodate for high altitude.

    Thank you!

    I have a 4L pail of wild blueberries looking for a good home. I think I’ll make my own pie filling….

  5. I just found your blog as I was searching for mincemeat recipes. As you mention that this would likely work with different pie fillings I thought I’d give it a try with mincemeat. It worked really well!

    Also, I liked that this was suppose to be a denser cake so it converted to gluten free really well; I just used my own gluten free flour mix cup for cup and added 1.5 tsp of xanthun gum.

    I will be making this with mincemeat again and look forward to trying other pie fillings too. Thank you!
