Cinnamon Apple Bars: A Celebration of Autumn

4

Thank you to ChicagoKate for sharing her family's recipe for Cinnamon Apple Bars. I'm dreaming of one (or five!)—warmed and topped with vanilla ice cream. Heavenly.

 

 

Jackie's Cinnamon Apple Squares (from ChicagoKate)

2 cups flour

1.5 cups brown sugar

1 stick butter, soft

1 cup chopped pecans (optional)

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup sour cream

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 egg

2 cups peeled, finely chopped apples -- preferably Granny Smith

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, and butter. Blend at low speed until well-mixed and crumbly. Stir in nuts if desired.

Press 2.75 cups of this mixture into the bottom of a greased 13X9 pan (can use the back of a spoon to press into pan). To remaining crumb mixture, add cinnamon, baking soda, salt, sour cream, vanilla, and egg.  Stir well. Stir in apples. Spoon evenly over crumb base.

Bake for approximately 25-35 minutes, until fork clean.  (Squares should remain moist.) After cooling, cut into squares. Serve alone or with whipped cream or ice cream.

Got a favorite fall family recipe to share? I'll post it here.
