Ingredients

1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
1 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon Chinese five spice powder
1 egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon water (can add a little more if needed)
3/4 cup fresh blueberries

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).

  2. Place butter cubes in freezer for 15 minutes.

  3. Whisk together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder in a large bowl and sprinkle in Chinese five spice powder.

  4. Cut in frozen butter using a pastry cutter until butter is about the size of peas.

  5. Mix in egg yolk, and continue cutting until thoroughly combined.

  6. Pour about 3/4 of the crumb mixture into a ungreased 9x9-inch baking dish. Press mixture down firmly using the back of a spoon.

  7. Spread blueberries in one layer and sprinkle remaining crumb mixture on top of the blueberries.

  8. Bake in the preheated oven until the top is golden brown and sides are crisped and browned, about 30–35 minutes.
