Yes, I know this isn't a food blog, but I do have a really awesome apple recipe to share with you today. You see, I grew up in the Apple Capital of Minnesota, so I just happen to know the world's greatest apple pie square recipe from a family friend of mine, Rosanne.
She's been working in the apple industry for over 30 years and knows pretty much everything there is to know about baking with apples, and everything else about apples for that matter.
Snowy Glazed Apple Pie Squares
1 cup shortening
8 medium size tart apples (pared and sliced) or about 5 cups
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs separated
1 1/2 cups corn flakes (crushed)
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
And here's a list of my favorite varieties of apples: Fireside, Regent, Cortland, Haralson, and Honeygold.
