DESSERT OR SNACK APPLE SQUARES

FILLING:

1 cup sugar
4 tbsp cornstarch
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 tsp grated lemon rind
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 cups sliced apples, coarsely chopped

Combine all the above ingredients, except apples, in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the mixture is thick. Remove from heat and add apples. Let apple mixture stand while making crumbs.

CRUMB MIXTURE:

2 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup margarine
3/4 cups quick oats, uncooked

Mix all the ingredients together, mixing thoroughly. Reserve 1 cup of the mixture. Spread the remaining mixture in the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Spread the filling over the crumbs. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon over the filling mixture. Sprinkle the reserved cup of crumbs over the top. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes.
