Aunt Leah's Raspberry Squares

The Cake Slice had 4 delicious cake choices this month. I try to choose the option that I'm less familiar with, this way my baking skills increase. This month I chose raspberry squares! I felt it was perfect being spring and all, using raspberry preserves in my baking choice just sounded quite delicious.

The dough for this recipe calls for yeast and 2 sticks of butter! The dough is pretty easy make and requires refrigeration overnight.

I was in a huge hurry to get the bars into the oven that I missed a few steps when I was weaving the lattice. The recipe said not to let the bars rise, and being that I'm not an expert at lattice, I was afraid I was taking to long to assemble them. After they bake and are cooled to room temperature, they are dusted with powdered sugar and cut into squares.The bars didn't quite make it to lunch, they were gone in just a few hours! Everyone loved them, and I was very pleased with the results. This is definitely a recipe I will be making over again, the next time around I'm going to add a little cream cheese, I'm sure that won't hurt the recipe!
