Squash Squares

Mary McNamara is one of my oldest friends – and we have baked in professional kitchens together as well as with one another at our homes. Mary is a natural born cook and baker and she is my #1 phone call when I want to brainstorm recipe development ideas. She is also a prolific gardner and lives on a farm – Plainville Farms, hence the image. These Squash Squares are typical of her approach – based on fresh fruits and vegetables, simple preparation, homespun and delicious. She likes to use butternut squash for these; it is easy to find, even pre-peeled, and has a brilliant color and rich, sweet texture.

    When I make these I top the cream cheese frosting with orange zest. Keeps anything from sticking to the top if I transport them anywhere as well as tasting great.

    Our recipe for Squash Squares includes the note “use canned squash and die” …in Mary McNamara’s handwriting……….

      Sigh. I used to care. But it is true that a 20 ounce tray of cut squash cooks up to just the right amount for this recipe!
