Apple Crumb Squares

Pin It

This is one of those recipes that I don't remember where it came from, but it has been one of my favorites for years and years. I have a few of those types of recipes lying around. For most of them I try to scribble down what website or friend I got them from, but this one is a lost cause. But at least the recipe itself is not lost because this is one of my favorite desserts! 

These bars have a really nice crust, but a soft center from the applesauce. The walnuts on top give it a little crunch as well. All in all, the combination of crunchy and soft is fantastic and they taste amazing. Grab yourself a tall glass of milk and make yourself a batch of these as soon as possible! They won't disappoint!
