These squares are fast and easy to make. They taste like butter tarts but do not take as long to make. I made these yesterday and they were ready to eat in a couple of hours. They are a big hit whenever I make them.
1In a medium bowl, combine flour and granulated sugar; cut in butter with a pastry blender until coarse crumbs are formed. Press into a 9 inch square pan. Bake at 350 F. 10 minutes, let cool 10 minutes.

Baking recipes often call for softened butter, but if you put the butter in the microwave you risk butter soup. Leaving it out at room temp is fine if you've got lots of time. But when your butter is cold and hard and you want it to be warm and soft, just pound it with a rolling pin.
