Fruit Squares...Easy as Pie

This recipe is as old as the hills for me! It goes back at least 25 years and it is always a hit. It's great for a crowd or a takealong. I know...one pound of butter! But let me tell you, you don't have to cut these in huge squares. They are so delicious and taste just like pie, only without the crust. The best part is that it takes very little time to prepare. You can top this with a dollop of fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream....YUM!

Kuchen Fruit Squares

1 lb. Margarine or butter
6 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 tsps baking powder
2 different canned pie fillings, like strawberry and blueberry, pineapple and blackberry

Melt butter or margarine; mix with other ingredients in a large bowl. Mixture will be slightly crumbly. Using ½ of the mixture, pat half of the mixture for a crust on the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Cover each half of the crust with a different pie filling. Take the remaining mixture and sprinkle over the top of the pie fillings. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown. Cool completely and cut into squares.
