Blueberry SquaresThese easy berry squares never fail to bring in raves of people of all ages. When things get really busy I like to make this fuss-free dessert a day ahead of time

Serves: 9-10 helpings

Cook Time: Prep – 25 minutes, Bake – 10 minutes + chilling

Ingredients

  • 1 cup crushed vanilla wafers
  • 2 tbs butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 cups fresh blueberries, divided
  • 3 tbs lemon juice
  • 1 tsp grated lemon peel
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tbs confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups minerature marshmallows

Directions

In a small bowl, combine wafers and butter. Press into a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on wire rack.

In a small saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch. Gradually whisk in water until smooth. Stir in 1 1/2 cups blueberries. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in lemon juice, peel and remaining blueberries. Cool completely.

In a small mixing bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners’ sugar; beat until soft peaks form. Fold in marshmallows. Spread over crust. Top with blueberry mixture. Cover and refrigerate until set, about 45 minutes
