Custardy Apple Squares

The local apples are just coming in and they seem especially delicious this year.  Or maybe I'm forgetting that here in upstate New York we have absolutely terrific apples.  At any rate, I'm happy to be baking with them.

This week I made Dorie Greenspan's Custardy Apple Squares.  It's sort of a cake however there is very little cake batter and lots of thinly sliced apples.  The only tricky part is slicing the apples but this time I used a madeleine so it wasn't tricky at all.

Here are the ingredients, all assembled.
(I did add rum, which didn't make it into the photo!)

And the final product, out of the oven and ready to serve.

My husband was hosting a meeting at our house last night and this was perfect:  seasonal, not too heavy, pretty to look at, and went well with tea.  


  1. this looks great--everyone must want all the meetings to be held at your house!

  2. I love apples too. So nice to have a change of fruit with the seasons. I bet this was a perfect dessert for your husband's meeting. One of the benefits to this group, you always have a dessert in the wings.

  3. Yes, this would be a perfect meeting treat! Yours looks wonderful.
