These apple squares remind me of home. Not because my mom ever made them; she’s too busy making the greatest pies I’ve ever eaten. No, these squares remind me of home because of the indescribable happiness that the combination of apples, cinnamon and sugar gives me every time I eat them, without fail. The next time you’re holed up in your apartment due to rain or six-foot snowfall (it is Pullman in mid-October, after all) consider these bad boys. They’ll leave you satisfied with staying home, even if it is Wings Wednesday at Valhalla.
