I’m so excited to announce the publication of A Delicious Dessert, a romance anthology with recipes. It was put together in honor of author Mary Welk, an author friend of mine (who posted on here!) who passed away late 2015. I have a story “Flirting with Fondue,” under my Julia Curtin pen name. All proceeds go to the American Heart Association. Here is the link to purchase eleven novellas with recipes for $2.99, while helping a great organization!
Enjoy this recipe for Apple Squares today too, from my handwritten recipe collection:
2 cups sifted flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cup shortening (margarine)
2 egg yolks, beaten
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup cold water
Sift together dry ingredients. Cut in shortening as for pie dough. Combine egg yolks, lemon juice and water and add to flour mixture. Mix thoroughly. Dough will be very moist. Do not add more flour. Divide in 2 parts. Roll out on WELL FLOURED (as on card) board and line bottom and sides of a 15 x 10 inch pan.
Apple Filling: Pare and slice 8 large apples thinly. Using hands, coat thoroughly with mixture of 3/4 cup sugar, 1/2 tsp. salt, 2 tablespoons flour, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and dash of nutmeg.
Arrange in crust lined pan and cover with top crust. Seal edges. Make decorative slits. Bake in 375F oven 1 hour. While warm ice with mixture of 1 cup conf. sugar, 1 tablespoon milk, and 1 tablespoon lemon juice. For easy serving, cool before cutting into squares.
