Blueberry Squares

I've made these easy berry squares for many, many years and they never fail to bring raves from people of all ages. I'm always being asked for the recipe! When things get really busy, I like the convenience of being able to make this fuss-free treat a day ahead of time. —Barbara Robbins, Chandler, Arizona
