Lisa\’s Butter Tart Squares


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.

    I wanted to try these squares prior to an upcoming party. I used the people at work as my Guinee Pigs on Monday. The squares were all gone by noon – they were a hit. I made mine with half raisins and half without. I will definately be making them again soon.

    Thanks for the recipe.

  2. Hey Leanne

    Glad the squares were popular… I’ve heard of people switching the raisins for chocolate chips or chopped pecans as well.

    Glad you liked the recipe.
