    CrystalB's Note:

    From my favourite church cookbook, where all the recipes are tried and true! **Like most of the reviews state, if you don't want to fight with the pastry to make it fit a cookie sheet - make 1.5x the dough recipe or use a smaller pan.

      I've been missing apple squares since my great grandmother passed. These are a great substitue. The flavor was fantastic, I used 6 medium/large gala apples. In my jelly roll pan (18x13) the crust did not completely cover the bottom and top so next time I will likely try to make 1.5 times the crust recipe. Crust is light, flaky and delicious & filling is just the right amount of sugar /cinnamon. The glaze I had to add an extra Tbsp of water but is a great topping. Serves beatuifully warm or cold and is even better with some vanilla ice cream. Thanks for a keeper!!

      Loved this recipe. Cuts beautifully. Used a 10x15 pan. I used butter for the shortening and it worked perfect. Needed a tad more crust, so next time I will do 3 cups of flour and 3/4 cups of milk. Used a simple egg wash, which browned beautifully. I did not put the glaze on and it didn't need it at all. I use a convection oven at 375 degrees. Looks just like an apple pie but square, but better.

      VERY GOOD! After reading the reviews I cut the sugar back to 2/3 cup and doubled the dough, it was perfect. I made a plate of these for my sons preschool. All the children loved them and one of the teachers asked me which bakery I bought them from! It's a keeper:)
