Blueberry Shortbread Bar Cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter with powdered sugar and add flour. Mix well. Spread half of this mixture (approx 2 1/2 cups) into a greased 9 x 13 pan. Bake for 15 minutes. Let the crust cool for 5 minutes.Spread the pie filling over the top of the crust. Sprinkle it with the other half of the crust mixture and gently press it down with a spatula.
