Okay… I have to admit, these squares are not the low-cal variety, but they’re soooo good!!
Whether you have a family reunion, a community picnic or a branding, these decadent butter tart squares won’t last long. Even folks who don’t love raisins seem to like these squares. With a shortbread base and a creamy caramel filling, they’re a hit every time!
I’ve doubled the recipe here as I often freeze a container – they taste pretty good frozen too!! :)
This recipe comes from a special lady (my late neighbor, Lisa Baptie), who brought these to many community gatherings.
Lisa’s Butter Tart Squares
2 1/2 cups flour

2 cups raisins
