Mom’s Apple Squares

September/October 2009

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (106 votes)

Traditional recipes for apple squares often use plenty of trans fat-laden shortening in the crust. We replaced it with a mixture of canola oil and butter and swapped out half the all-purpose flour for whole-wheat pastry flour for a little fiber. They are best enjoyed slightly warm. Gently reheat any leftovers in the oven or toaster oven to recrisp the crust.

Mom's apple squares

I was rushed so I used a sore made crust, rolled it out to fit the 9x13. I then reduced the sugar to 1/2 Cup added to rest of ingredients and topped with remaining crust.
Fantastic. Making again this weekend. OK to omit sugar topping. Not necessary.

Tasted just like apple pie but sooo much easier. I hate making pies

Amazing

Delicious! I only had regular whole wheat flour so that's what I used. I thought it was a little light on the apples, but my husband thought it was perfect. Definitely a keeper.
