Blueberry-Lemon Crumb Bars

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons lemon zest
1 pinch salt
1/2 cup butter, chilled and diced
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups fresh blueberries
1/4 cup white sugar
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

5 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup confectioners' sugar for dusting

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch
baking pan.

Start by making the crust. In a medium bowl, stir together the 2
cups flour, 2 tablespoons white sugar, lemon zest and salt. Cut in
the 1/2 cup butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Beat
egg and vanilla together; stir into the crumb mixture until a dough
forms. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden.
Remove from oven and set aside to cool slightly.

Sprinkle blueberries over the crust. Combine the 1/4 cup sugar and
nutmeg; sprinkle over the blueberries. Make the topping: In a medium
bowl, cream together the 5 tablespoons butter and brown sugar until
smooth. Mix in the flour, so that the mixture is crumbly like
streusel. Sprinkle over the blueberry layer.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until browned.
Cool and then dust with confectioners' sugar before cutting into
