Hazel’s Apple Squares – Renee Wildes

Before she passed away, my husband’s grandma gave each of the "kids" a notebook of family recipes. Her sister-in-law Hazel made these apple squares, and they’re a great fall recipe, with apples being in season.

Hazel’s Apple Squares

2-1/2 cups flour

1 tsp salt

1 cup + 1 Tbsp butter

1 egg yolk + enough milk added to = 2/3 cup together

1 cup crushed corn flakes

8 cups apples

2-1/2 cups sugar (more if the apples are a "sour" variety)

1 tsp cinnamon

powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 400.

Combine flour, salt, butter, egg and milk. Divide into 2 equal parts. Roll one part to fit a jellyroll pan. Slice apples and toss w/cinnamon & sugar. Place corn flakes on the rolled crust. Add apple mixture. Roll out second half of dough and place over apples. Do NOT make slits in crust. Bake for 40-50 minutes. Cool. Top with sprinkling of powdered sugar. Cut into squares.



When park ranger Cheyenne Rafferty’s truck is destroyed by an earthquake, she doesn’t think her day can get any worse. Until she runs afoul of a demon from the ancient past – and the compelling warrior who followed it forward in time.

Hero Marek awakens 2000 years in the future, to a world all but incomprehensible. Sent to teach modern warriors to combat the Reynak, he now finds the demon the only thing familiar. His people and their epic struggle have been lost to the passage of time. The only one willing to help him is a daughter of the earth, a beautiful shifter woman with the heart of a wolf.
