Happy Red & White Strawberry Squares

June 29, 2011

Canada day is just around the corner and I’m sure all of you are looking for a special red and white treat to take to your long weekend BBQ. These squares are always a winner in my house, and whenever I take them to a gathering. I was given this recipe by a friend I worked with in university and have made it every strawberry season since. It is light and yummy!! To travel, I usually cut and freeze the squares so they stay as cold as possible.

Strawberry Squares

Shortbread Crust

1 ⅓ cups flour

2/3 cup butter

3 tablespoons brown sugar

          – Mix, press into a 9” pan & bake at 350˚ for 15 minutes

 Filling

2 cups strawberries

½ cup sugar

1 package strawberry jello

1 package Dreamwhip

      – Heat 2 cups strawberries until hot. Add  ½ cup sugar and 1 package strawberry jello, let cool. Make 1 package Dreamwhip. Add ½ to strawberry mixture, reserve other ½ for topping. Pour strawberry mixture over the shortbread crust and let cool. Top with remaining Dreamwhip, Refrigerate. Top with sliced strawberries.

I’m off to make some strawberry popsicles… be prepared for more yummy strawberry recipes!! 🙂
