Apple Squares

Yes its true, I still haven't used up all my apples. I made this recipe for the first time when my family and I recently drove up to Boston.  My husband said he wanted apple pie.....not very portable and even harder to eat while driving.  I found this recipe and I'm so glad I did, it's full of apples and portable too.  Can't go wrong here.

In the bowl above is the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.

Here we have the brown sugar, white sugar, and butter.

After those ingredients have been mixed, add the eggs.

Incorporate the flour mixture.

Add the apples and stir by hand to combine.

Pour into a greased 9x13 inch pan.

Top with cinnamon sugar mix and bake.

Bake until it turns nice and golden on top.

Let cool before cutting into squares.  The texture is very much like a moist cake.  The apples chunks are perfect.  I left out the nut option and just added more apples in their place.  My husband can't get enough of this so I had to take the rest to work, to save ourselves from it.  Enjoy!

Here is the original recipe, my modified version will be below: Apple Squares

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 cup butter - melted
1 cup of packed brown sugar
1 cup of granulated sugar
1 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups apples - peeled and chopped
2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350.

Add the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon into a bowl and stir to combine.
In a separate bowl add the melted butter and both sugars and mix to combine.  Next, add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix.
Slowly add the flour mixture into the butter/sugar mixture until combined.  Add the chopped apples and stir by hand to combine so the apples don't break apart.  Pour into a prepared 9x13 inch dish and top with the cinnamon sugar mixture.  Bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until the top begins to turn a golden brown.  Let cool in the pan before cutting.
