For Blueberry Filling:
4 cups frozen blueberries
4 teaspoons cornstarch
¼ cup sugar
Juice of 1 lemon


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Whisk together flour, light brown sugar, sugar, baking powder, salt, and lemon zest in a bowl. Cut in butter in small amounts until mixture forms into small crumbs. Stir in vanilla extract and egg. Press HALF of crumb mixture into the bottom of a greased 9”x13” pan.
