APPLE PIE SQUARES
My niece, Lynne shared this on Facebook. It is a copy of recipe from her Grandmother, Berniece Fluent. I shared information about Berniece with my blog for her recipe for Turtle Candy several weeks ago.
Today I was looking through recipes deciding what I wanted to bake and share with a friend (Mike) who has invited my son, Rodey, and me to his home for lunch tomorrow with he and his Mom I came across this recipe. I couldn't help think of Berniece as I put it together.
Mike Egge and Rodey worked for the same company a few years ago. After they realized they had known each other as kids they shared stories and learned they had attended the same church. They decided to take their Mom's back to that church for Sunday services then take us to lunch. We had a great time and I'm sure we'll have another great visit tomorrow. It will be good to see Darlene again. I'm also hoping that we enjoy this Apple Pie Square dessert. (P.S. This recipe didn't get published last night and already the lunch date is over. We did have a wonderful visit. Mike's lovely new home is on an acreage; it is nestled among trees along the Big Sioux River. We determined that it had been eleven years ago that we went to church and lunch together.. Darlene is even more of a lady than I remembered. Aren't friends wonderful?)
In case you are unable to read the recipe care, here is the recipe again:
