Blueberry Squares Recipe

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

"This was very good, but in my opinion, 3 Tbsp of lemon plus lemon zest is just too much for this recipe. I only used 2 Tbsp and still thought the lemon took over the flavor in this recipe. I would make this again, but just use 1 Tbsp of lemon juice in order to highlight the star of the show, blueberries!"

"Not bad. I used frozen blueberries instead of fresh, so they may have come out more tart than intended. Besides that, the flavors in the bar are balanced really well. The only thing I'm not sure about is the marshmallows. They made the texture a bit weird. It sounds like it's hard to make, but it's actually pretty easy."

"My family and I thought this was terrible. The only reason we can give it 2 stars is because our neighbors who were over for dinner liked it."

"I would do a graham cracker crust in my opinion. I didn't like the vanilla wafers but the blueberry topping was just awesome! Liked the marshmellows."

"I've been making this since its publication in 2007, and it's one of my favorites. I love blueberries, so I'm always glad to find a good recipe that features them. I am not a marshmallow fan, so I was skeptical at first, but in this recipe, I love them."

"Great recipe. I was a little concerned about how the marshmellows would work, but they blended in well and they added a different kind of texture when you are enjoying the dessert."

"P.S. This blueberry topping can also be doubled as a delicious pie filling during the plentiful blueberry season. During winter, frozen blueberries work really well whatever variation of this recipe you choose!"

"This excellent recipe gets rave reviews wherever it goes. I have also successfully layered it as a trifle, doubling the blueberry and marshmallow layers & doubling the butter in the crust (to assist with firming up the "crust" layer in the fridge). Whichever way it's made, this "stumble-upon" recipe has become an all-time friend & family favorite."

"I tried this last night and made a few modifications. I used a ready made graham cracker pie crust and blackberries instead of the blueberries. It was delicious. My son isn't a fan of desserts but he had 2 pieces. It's something that I'll definitely make again."

"The blueberry topping is how my Mom always made her blueberry pies. The marshmallows, when folded into the cream mixture, stabilize it so it does not melt. This is really good."

"Great for dessert or just a sweet snack. For the crust I use crushed gluten free cookies (some members of the family have celiac disease). Omit the marshmallows and carry on. Works equally well with strawberries or any chopped fruit. My fav is peaches"
