Sour Cream Apple Squares

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!

This recipe is an old-time favorite that was given to me by my mother-in-law. She told me the cake shouldn't be eaten the day it's baked...aging makes it so much better. She once entered this cake in a contest and won first prize!

Meet the Cook: When I first made this pie for my family, the reactions weren't real words - they were more "Ooh!" and "Mmm!" I created it to enter in a local fair. My goal was an apple pie like no other, and it ended up winning third prize. ("That was very interesting!" one judge said.) Working with children is something I love. In fact, I hold "Fun with Food" classes after school for elementary students ages 6-8. My own family consists of my husband and our daughter, 11. -Lisa DiNuccio, Boxford, Massachusetts
