Reviews for Apple Harvest Squares
"These squares were delicious! They stayed together well and are even better after sitting for a day. I think they would be perfect if you subbed brown sugar for the white sugar in the coconut/milk/nut mixture."
"turned out really delicious, added 1 cup more apples, and sprinkled with a little nutmeg, to give it that little something, for the topping I added 1/3c. nuts, what I really liked, the slices stayed nice and firm even the next day, will definitely make it again. thanks for a great recipe!"
"I have used this recipe for about 17 years. I got it from an elderly friend who was a wonderful cook and had a fantastic collection of family recipes. She shared many of them with me and this one has become a family favorite."
