Recipe: Impossibly Easy French Apple Dessert Squares

Image found here.
Finally! The last apple dessert I made with the apples I picked from an orchard recently. Now I know that with 20 pounds of apples I can make: an apple pie, apple muffins, apple bread, another apple pie, and apple squares. This particular Betty Crocker recipe is so "easy" because it's made with Bisquick!



1 cup Original Bisquick™ mix
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine
3/4 cup chopped nuts

Fruit Mixture

6 cups sliced peeled tart apples (6 medium-sized apples)
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup Original Bisquick™ mix
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
4 eggs, beaten


  • Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray. In medium bowl, mix 1 cup Bisquick mix and the brown sugar. Cut in 1/4 cup butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until crumbly. Stir in nuts; set aside.
  • In large bowl, mix apples, cinnamon and nutmeg; spoon into pan. In medium bowl, stir remaining ingredients until well blended. Pour mixture over apples. Sprinkle with streusel.
  • Bake 45 to 55 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean and top is golden brown. Cool 30 minutes or until set before cutting into squares. Store in refrigerator.
I think the only thing I changed in this recipe was that I did not include nuts in the topping (since many people do not like nuts in their desserts). The recipe is a bit egg-y for my taste, but still is very yummy, especially with whipped cream and/or ice cream!
