A guaranteed show stopper. It’s a big hit in my family. I learned this dessert from the best cook in the whole world, my (late) Grandmother. The apples and walnuts are optional – serve warm with whipped cream.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup white sugar

1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease the bottom of a 9 inch square baking dish.
