weight watchers recipes | Raspberry Squares 3 Points+



Serves: 24

Ingredients

 1 1/3 cup(s) all-purpose flour  
 1/3 cup(s) powdered sugar  
 8 Tbsp unsalted butter, cut into small pieces  
 1 1/2 tsp almond extract  
 1 cup(s) preserves, red raspberry  
  1 cup(s) unsweetened frozen raspberries  
 1 Tbsp powdered sugar, for garnishing  

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Place flour, 1/3 cup powdered sugar, butter and almond extract in a food processor; pulse to combine and break up butter into pea-size pieces.

Pour flour mixture into an 11 1/2- X 7 1/2-inch ungreased baking dish; smooth into an even layer and tap with the back of a spatula to form a crust. Bake until crust just starts to turn golden, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium heat, combine preserves and frozen raspberries; cook, stirring occasionally, until preserves turn to liquid and frozen raspberries are thawed, about 3 to 5 minutes.

When crust is ready, pour raspberry mixture over top of hot crust and smooth into an even layer; bake until set, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool in pan until just warm. Cut into 24 squares, remove from pan and cool completely on a wire rack. When raspberry bars are completely cool, dust with remaining tablespoon powdered sugar. Yields 1 square per serving.
