Creamy Apple Squares- Recipes My Mom Gave Me

Many years ago, I found this recipe in a stash of recipes owned by my great aunt, my grandmother’s sister. I know that people usually get family recipes from their grandmother, but, I did not.

My grandma did not bake and barely ever cooked.  So, I am guessing my mom got her love of recipes from her aunt, not, her mom. 🤔

Anyway, when I first read it, they sounded not so appetizing. I mean, sour cream and apples?! Ugh. But, I made them and was pleasantly surprised at how delicious they were. Nowadays, I use plain Greek yogurt for them, but, they are just as yummy!

How to Make Creamy Apple Squares:

  • Mix the dry cake mix with softened butter until crumbly. Then, remove 2/3 cup of that mixture and set it aside.
  • Next, take the remaining cake mix/butter crumbs and press down firmly into your greased pan.
  • Layer the sliced apples on top of that crust.
  • In a bowl, whisk together yogurt ( or sour cream) and egg. Then, spread that on top of the sliced apples.
  • Remember that reserved 2/3 cup of cake mix/butter crumbs? Mix it with the brown sugar and cinnamon. Then, sprinkle it on top of it all.
  • Bake!
  • These are best served warm, but, do let them cool for 15-30 minutes before serving to avoid burning the roof of your mouth with hot apples. #trustme
