Beyond Lemon Squares: How to Make Fruit Squares Using Blueberries, Raspberries and Strawberries
Step 1. Make The Crust
1 cup white whole-wheat flour or all-purpose flour
1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons butter, softened
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8-inch-square baking pan with foil and generously coat it with cooking spray.
To prepare crust: Combine flour, confectioners’ sugar, 3 tablespoons cornstarch and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Add oil and butter; using your fingertips, blend into the flour mixture until evenly combined. The mixture will be a little crumbly. Firmly press the dough into the prepared pan. Bake the crust until just barely beginning to brown around the edges, 15 to 20 minutes.
