Blueberry Squares

These have been one of my husband's favorite cookies since he was little. Now it is a family favorite. You can make these with whatever jam you prefer. We like our homemade blueberry or raspberry, but apricot and strawberry are good too.

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 2 cups and 1 Tbsp flour

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 12oz jam

Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla, add flour, baking powder and salt. Grease and flour a 9x9 pan. Spread 2/3 thirds of batter in pan. Spread jam. Take small pieces of remaining batter and flatten, place over jam to cover the majority of jam.

Bake for 45 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

  1. Those look soooo good. I am going blueberry picking tomorrow and hope to get enough for jam... them maybe I will make these!!

  2. Yum, Mom! I would eat the whole pan of blueberry squares if only you would let me.


Thanks for stopping by for a visit! I look forward to your thoughts.
