Second day apple squares

Yield: 12 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups White flour, unbleached
2 cups Brown sugar, firmly packed
½ cup Butter (or margarine)
1 cup Chopped nuts (optional)
2 teaspoons Cinnamon (or less)
1 teaspoon Soda
½ teaspoon Salt
1 cup Sour cream (or yogurt)
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1 Egg
2 cups Apples, peeled and finely chopped (about 2 apples)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar and margarine. Blend at low speed, until the mixture forms fine crumbs. If you want to include them, stir in the nuts now.

Place about 2¾ cups of the crumb mixture into an ungreased pan, about 13 x 9 inches. Press down firmly.

Add the remaining ingredients (except for the apples) to the remaining crumb mixture. Blend well. Stir the chopped apples into the batter.

Spoon the batter evenly over the crumb base in the pan. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 30-40 minutes. If you use the larger pan, bake for 25-30 minutes. Cool before cutting. Better yet, let it wait 24 hours before cutting. Store loosely covered.
