I MAKE 'apple everything' in fall when the new crop is in, and I was happy to add this delicious recipe to my apple dishes. A lady at church shared it with me. Sometimes I'll top the squares with a cream cheese frosting, especially if I'm having company. -Leona Pecoraro, Ravenden, Arkansas.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups finely chopped peeled tart apples
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugar; beat in egg. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well (dough will be stiff). Stir in apples. Spread batter into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Combine brown sugar, walnuts, cinnamon and vanilla; sprinkle over batter. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool. Cut into squares.
