Apple and Almond Squares

Apple and Almond Squares

Here are a few things I love about fall:

I love the colors.

Cool weather.

Halloween candy.

Pumpkins.

Halloween decorations.

Scary movies on TV.

The air.

Sweaters.

Hot chocolate.

The fireplace.

The smell of bonfires in the air at night.

Eating soup.

Baking.

Baking with pumpkins.

Baking with apples.

Which brings me to today’s recipe. A good recipe for the fall yet a simple recipe for apple and almond squares. Nothing spells fall to me more than eating and baking with apples. I remember as a teenager, we used to go with my parents to pick apples at a nearby orchard. We used to have so much fun running around, picking the best apples and eating apples until we couldn’t eat anymore.

What are some of your favorite fall things?

    Looks nice and easy. Will try it
    A question completely not related. How much does maple syrup cost you? For the real thing here it’s about $10 or so. To buy with the ‘taste’ of maple is about $2-3.

      I think it’s about the same but it depends on the size, plus we have really great maple syrup over here as Canada is the home of maple syrup. Of course the better ones can get quite pricey!

    Not a complaint – just wanted to let you know that you need to edit you recipe – at the end of it, it says to “top with slivered apples” – I think you mean “top with slivered ALMONDS”.
    It is a great recipe!
