Creamy Apple Squares

January 17, 2012


While digging through some old recipes this weekend, I came across this gem from my Great-Aunt Annie. Now, how did my great aunt's recipes find their way to my possession?  I honestly, don't remember. My grandmother has been gone for 20 years. I think...think..she gave them to me before she died.  But, I could be wrong.

Anyhow, Mr Plain and the kids are very glad that I had this recipe.  I made these yesterday and they were virtually gone by the end of the day.  Gone.  They are creamy, fruity and taste awesome warmed up with a nice glass of milk.  At least, that's how I inhaled a good portion of them.
