Old-Fashioned Raspberry Squares


Source: Inspired by
Servings: 24

  • 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)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease 9 x 13 inch pan.
  2. Using a mixer, cream the butter and sugar. Add the vanilla. Add the eggs one at a time, beating each one in.
  3. Add the flour, one cup at a time.
  4. 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.
  5. Put a tsp of jam or filling in each square.
  6. 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.
