Easy as apple pie

Okay, maybe it's not quite apple pie, but it's close and super easy to make. A few weekends ago, my mother in law brought down some apples from the tree in her backyard. They sat in our fridge until this weekend because I had no ideas what to make with them. I had a few cook books in our cupboard, so I started flipping through them until something caught my eye. That recipe was Anne's apple squares. 


1/4 cup margarine
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/8 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking power
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped apples 

3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup white sugar


For bottom, melt the margarine; add sugars, egg and vanilla. Stir in remaining ingredients. Spread in a well greased 8 inch pan. For the topping, sprinkle with the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes. Enjoy!

* I doubled the amount of apples
* I also doubled the recipe to make thicker bars

Enjoy right out of the oven with some vanilla ice cream!
