Sour Cream Apple Squares





Have you had your fill of apples yet? In my house, the answer is NEVER!

Warning: The following recipe is neither low fat or low in sugar, but I couldn't resist passing it on to you. Use it for a special time. You're gonna love it!

2 c. flour
2 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 c. butter or margarine, softened
1 c. chopped nuts (I like walnuts)
1-2 t. cinnamon
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
8 oz. container sour cream
1 t. vanilla
1 egg
2 c. finely chopped, peeled apple

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, and margarine. Beat at low speed until crumbly. Stir in nuts.
Press 2 & 3/4 cups of crumb mixture in bottom of ungreased 9x13 inch pan.

To remaining mixture, add cinnamon, baking soda, salt, sour cream, vanilla, and egg; mix well. Stir in apples.
Spoon evenly over crumb mixture in pan.

Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 30 minutes. Cut into squares. Serve warm or cool; if desired, serve with whipped cream or ice cream. Store in refrigerator.
Serves 12.

I just started eating apples with a vengeance two weeks ago now, so I have not had my fill of them either!
