Strawberry Squares
Gina's Weight Watcher Recipes
Servings: 24 Size: 1 2-inch square Old Points: 3 pts Points+: 4 pts
Calories: 138.2 • Fat: 4.7g Protein: 2.1 g Carb: 21.7 g Fiber: 0.1 g
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup canned strawberry pie filling
  • confectioner's sugar for dusting
  • baking spray



Preheat oven to 350°. Spray Baking Pam in a 13 x 9- inch baking pan.

In a large bowl, on the medium speed of an electric mixer, cream the butter with the granulated sugar until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla. Add the flour and mix thoroughly.

Spread the dough evenly in the prepared pan. With a small, sharp knife (or toothpick), score into twenty-four 2-inch squares. Place a teaspoon of pie filling in the center of each scored square. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the center of the pan comes out clean. Cool to room temperature, then sprinkle with confectioner's sugar before cutting and serving

I think I may make these for my wedding. We are going to have cake and all kinds of unhealthy foods. It'd be great to have something that looks classy and is more healthy! What do you gals think?

I think these would be an awesome, fun finger food!  And you could cut them into tiny squares, like petit fours, or triangles if you wanted them to look a little more fancy.  When's the big day?

I'll like them but the others won't. My grandma might enjoy them as well.

 I say go for it...you might be able to sprinkle some powdered sugar over it to give that "polished" look but then again that defeats the healthy part LOL.
