Date and Apple Squares

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Elly in Canada

This was an adopted recipe from Recipe*zaar I made these delicious squares last night, they are really moist and tasty! I did change the recipe and I am happy with the results. I used butter, my two apples measured 1 1/2 cups.

This was very simple recipe to do and oh so very delicious as well. I didn't have any nuts so I increased the date to 2/3 cup instead of 1/2 cup. :-)
