Butter tart square baking question

sassygirl1974 | Nov 13, 202104:02 PM     5

Hoping someone here can help me. Last year, I made and sold Christmas baking boxes that were a HUGE hit in my community. One of the items included were butter tart squares......butter tarts are a Christmas favourite here in Canada. For the most part, the butter tart squares turned out amazing, however, I found that the filling oozed over the edge of the shortbread crust and underneath. This resulted in quite a few of the edge pieces having no filling at all, which resulted in quite a bit of waste. I've done some internet research to see if there is something I can do to avoid the filling going under the crust around the edges but can't find anything. The edge pieces are the best part so what a shame that I had to throw them out due to no filling! Any suggestions/ideas on what I can do to avoid this happening this year?

Thanks!
