Apple Squares

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Nova Scotia Cook

Many moons ago my one and only sibling,Debbie, compiled for me a cookbook of her favorite tried and true recipes. This recipe for apple squares was in it. Haven't made them in a while but I do remember how delicious they tasted. Must make it a point to bake these one day soon.

This is very similar to the apple squares my mother used to make; they are far and away my favourite comfort food. I think that she originally got the recipe from a newspaper or magazine, if I recall correctly from heplping peel and slice apples as a child. Some changes that Ive made - add a couple of pears, and slice the fruit with a mandolin so it lays flat and makes it easier to pat the top down.
