Strawberry Squares

Ready in 45 minutes

Sweet baked treats baked with strawberry pie filling, then topped with powdered sugar.

These come from the Magnolia Bakery cookbook, More From Magnolia: Recipes from the World Famous Bakery.

For those who never heard of them, Magnolia Bakery is well known here in New York City.

Their cupcakes are a guilty pleasure I occasionally treat myself to... red velvet anyone?

I recently saw this posted on My Kitchen Adventure, and when I saw she calculated the points and they were only

3 points each, I knew I had to make these. My only change was swapping out the cherry pie filling for strawberry filling,

but any pie filling would work.


1/2 cup unsalted butter; softened
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
4 large Eggs; at room temperature
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup canned strawberry pie filling
confectioner's sugar; for dusting
baking spray

Original recipe makes 1 Serving



Preheat oven to 350°. Spray Baking Pam in a 13 x 9- inch baking pan.

In a large bowl, on the medium speed of an electric mixer, cream the butter with the granulated sugar until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla. Add the flour and mix thoroughly.

Spread the dough evenly in the prepared pan. With a small, sharp knife (or toothpick), score into twenty-four 2-inch squares. Place a teaspoon of pie filling in the center of each scored square. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the center of the pan comes out clean. Cool to room temperature, then sprinkle with confectioner's sugar before cutting and serving.
