I had a couple bad looking apples so I thought I should do something with them. I had my Cross of Christ Lutheran Church cookbook from Houston, MN out as it’s my go to book for my fried rice recipe so I paged through and there was a recipe for Sour Cream Apple Squares. I thought I would give it a try.
They don’t look very pretty. In fact, Craig was by and I told him to try them. Craig said, they don’t look so good. I told him to try them and then he had three. They are good!!
Here’s the recipe:
2 cups flour
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 cup chopped nuts
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon soda
1 cup dairy sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups peeled and chopped apples
Combine the first three ingredients in a mixing bowl. Blend at low speed until crumbly. Stir in nuts. Press 2 3/4 cups crumb mixture into ungreased 9 x 13 panc. To the remaining mixture add cinnamon, soda, sour cream, vanilla and egg. Blend well. Stir in apples and spoon over base. bake 25-35 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
They are wonderful and a great way to use up a couple dud apples.
