Fresh blueberries have been 2/$3 lately, so we have been eating a LOT of them!  I found this recipe and it is a keeper.  Easy and great tasting!

Crust  and Topping
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/8 tsp salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, chilled

For crust/topping: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Line a 9x9 inch baking pan with parchment and give a light spritz with cooking spray.

Combine the flour, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Cut the butter into 1/2-inch cubes, and add to the flour mixture. Using a fork for pastry cutter, cut the butter in until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Remove 3/4 cup of the mixture to use as the topping ; set aside.
