- 3/4 c. butter
- 1 1/2 c. sugar
- 4 eggs, room temperature
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 c. flour
- Raspberry jam (any kind of fam or pie filling will do!)
- Icing sugar (for garnish)
- Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease 9 x 13 inch pan.
- Using a mixer, cream the butter and sugar. Add the vanilla. Add the eggs one at a time, beating each one in.
- Add the flour, one cup at a time.
- Pour the batter into the greased, rectagular pan. It will be quite thick and you will need to use a spatula to spread it around a little. "Score" it into 24 squares (4 x 6). Scoring basically means to take a toothpick or a small knife and mark off the 24 squares on the top of the batter, so you know where to put the filling.
- Put a tsp of jam or filling in each square.
- Bake for 30-35 mins. Remove from oven. Cool, cut, serve and enjoy :)
We have coffee hour after Church every Sunday and I wanted to make something to bring. I saw this recipe while browsing one of my favorite cooking websites, "Skinny Taste". The squares reminded me of something my grandmother made, so I decided they fit the bill perfectly. The original recipe called for cherry pie filling, skinny taste used strawberry pie filling and I used raspberry jam! Basically, you can use any pie filling or jam. I am looking forward to trying blueberry.
