Sour Cream Apple Squares

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"Mom and I formulated this recipe back in the '50s after visiting a friend's farm where they made the most delicious sour cream ever. Our first try was perfect, and these apple squares soon became a favorite to serve at social functions. Years ago, we made six pans of these squares when a young Johnny Carson presented his magic show at our card club!"

These were not squares. It was very cakey, and the crust was rock hard. It was bland at best. I would not use this recipe again.

What a crowd favorite! I didn't change anything about the recipe to modify it and it didn't need it either. The only complaint I got was that I needed to make more of it!
