Frosted Apple Squares

Frosted Apple Squares - Parents Canada

Fall is apple’s time to shine. And their ultimate companion as leaves crisp and temps dip? Cinnamon. Take advantage of the arguably perfect produce with these chill and bake squares. There’s a bit of waiting involved, so make it a weekend recipe project.


For the dough
3-3/4 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 (2-1/4 tsp.) envelope Fleischmann’s® Quick Rise Yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
1 cup butter or margarine
3 egg yolks

For the apple filling
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons Fleischmann’s® Corn Starch
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg yolk, beaten
3 medium cooking apples, cored, peeled and thinly sliced

For the powdered sugar glaze
2 cups powdered sugar
3 to 4 tablespoons milk


Combine 1-1/4 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt in a large mixer bowl. Heat water, milk, and butter until very warm (120° to 130°F).

Gradually add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add egg yolks and 1/2 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed.

Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Cover tightly with plastic wrap; refrigerate 8 to 24 hours. Remove from refrigerator; uncover dough and let stand 30 minutes.

Divide dough in half; roll half of the dough on lightly floured surface to fit the bottom of ungreased 15-1/2 x 10-1/2 x 1-inch jelly roll pan. Place in pan, pressing dough up sides. Spread with Apple Filling.

Roll the remaining dough large enough to cover filling. Place over filling; seal edges together. Snip surface of dough with scissors to let steam escape during baking.

Bake at 375°F for 20 to 25 minutes or until evenly golden. Cool 10 minutes; drizzle with Powdered Sugar Glaze. Let cool in pan; cut into squares.

Apple Filling
Combine water, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a large saucepan. Stir in egg yolk and sliced apples.

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until thick, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; let cool.

Powdered Sugar Glaze
Stir powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl until smooth.
