  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Lightly spray a 9x13-inch baking pan with cooking spray; set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine ½ cup granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder and flour. Using a pastry cutter, or tow forks (I used my hands); cut in butter. Add egg and lemon extract and mix until well combined and resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Take half of the mixture and press into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  5. In a separate bowl, combine blueberries, ½ cup granulated sugar and cornstarch. Stir gently.
  6. Add the blueberry mixture evenly over the crust. Crumble the remaining dough over the top of the blueberries.
  7. Bake for 45 minutes or until the top is lightly browned. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before cutting.
