Impossibly Easy French Apple Dessert Squares



Apples and cinnamon, oh my! 



This is a really close cousin to Dutch apple pie, actually maybe more like a crisp, and  there’s no crust to roll out!  French apple dessert has a buttery crust, and is packed with apples, cinnamon and nutmeg.  



It’s covered with a hard-to-resist crumbly streusel topping of brown sugar and pecans, that is crisp and delicious and sweet. 




My "go-to" apple for desserts is Honeycrisp, use your favorite apple for baking this dessert.  I make it with Splenda instead of granulated sugar, you would never know the difference! 



I used a 9 x 13-inch Pyrex baking dish, making it much easier to cut into squares instead of making in a pie plate and cutting into wedges.  For smaller squares, cut into 15 servings, it’s on the rich side.

You are going to love a helping of this with whipped cream or ice cream, or just on its own!

We've had lots of celebrating here lately:  our 51st anniversary, my birthday and now Mother's Day shortly...

This is a perfect treat for Mom and everyone on Mother's Day!

  10. "impossibly easy" - I like this two words compound.
    Your apples and cinnamon dessert is ideal for celebrating happy anniversaries (Congratulations!!). Top it with some ice-cream, and you get a really decadent treat.
    We use Splenda in Israel too, and its a good sugar substitute.

    1. Thanks, Duta! I like those 2 words together also. I use Splenda a lot, saves a lot of calories so then I can eat ice cream on this. ☺
