This is a simple, delicious, homey dessert that I completely had forgotten from our childhood! My sister made it when we were over for dinner one night, pulling a little scrap out of her recipe box, and put the recipe on the counter. I picked it up to have a look and noted that it was written in another sister's handwriting. It was completely yummy and so easy to make. I need to do this one again soon.
Love to my Mom and sisters as I think of this dessert tonight.
NOTE- In the pan shown, we doubled the recipe as its about a 11" square dish.
Mom's Apple Torte
Makes on 8x8 dish, serves 4-6

1/2-1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Mix altogether, pour into 8x8" greased pan and bake at 325 degrees for about 45 minutes.
*Note, adding more than 1 cup of apples will makes it thicker and more pie-like.

Out of the oven, cooling a bit before we dig in!
