apple&cinnamon dessert squares

i rip out pages of books. 

yes, you read that right.

somehow, i end up with countless strips of paper with recipes i've ripped out of magazines, pamphlets, packages, and yes, actually cook books.

all these pieces of assorted recipes get stuffed into my recipe box. and every once in a while, i'll pull one out to try. 

well, lately i've been on a roll. this week i made 4 different recipes i've never tried before. mostly desserts. you should have come to visit. i would have fed you.

this recipe was better than i expected it to be. and a lot easier too.

this recipe originally came from a really old pillsbury mix and match meal book. i changed and added a couple ingredients and it turned out delicious!

i ended up eating a square or two (and sometimes three) for breakfast. it goes really well with coffee.

to make these apple&cinnamon dessert squares you will need:

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp baking power
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
2/3 cup milk
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
3 large sliced and peeled apples (not granny smiths. i used a mix of gala and macintosh)
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon


preheat oven to 350F. Grease your 9x13 pan. 
in a large bowl combine: flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, nutmeg. mix well.
add milk, egg and vanilla. blend well.
pour into greased pan.
in a small bowl combine: 1/3 cup sugar and cinnamon. mix well.
sprinkle sugar mixture over top.

bake at 350F for 30-40 minutes or until edges are light golden and a fork goes easily through an apple slice.
approximately 12 servings. or 6 if your name is jessica ronnevik.


 cut up your apples into slices that are not too thick.

the batter. 

lay down your apples.

all done and out of the oven!
