It’s been a banner year for apples.

Our neighbors organized a cider pressing party to use up some of theirs.

I’ve had some apples from our trees sitting on the counter for far too long. Yesterday I decided it was time to bake them into something.

I was strapped for time, so I needed something fast. While flipping through my cookbooks I came across this recipe for Sour Cream Apple Squares. Easy. Had all of the ingredients. Sounded tasty.

In 45 minutes I had a big pan of warm, moist, sweet, cinnamon-laced, nutty, apple-flecked cake waiting to be cut into squares.

Absolutely fantastic.

Little by little I am going to eat every one of those Sour Cream Apple Squares if someone doesn’t hide the tray! So good.

Speaking of ‘Little By Little’, that is the name of this lovely new tune from Ireland’s Niamh Crowther. Can’t sit still while it is on, which is the best way to burn off some cake.

Check out Niamh Crowther on her Website where you can learn of an upcoming show. You can buy the music here.

Cheers!
