Second Day Apple Squares
unbleached all-purpose flour
peeled, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃).
In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar and margarine.
Blend at low speed, until the mixture forms fine crumbs.
If you want to include them, stir in the nuts now.
Place about 2 ¾ cups of the crumb mixture into an ungreased pan, about 13 x 9 inches.
Press down firmly.
Add the remaining ingredients (except for the apples) to the remaining crumb mixture.
Stir the chopped apples into the batter.
Spoon the batter evenly over the crumb base in the pan.
Bake at 350℉ (180℃) F for 30 to 40 minutes.
If you use the larger pan, bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
Cool before cutting.
Better yet, let it wait 24 hours before cutting.
Store loosely covered.
