1-1/3 C. whole wheat pastry flour

3/4 C. apple butter or your choice of fruit sweetened jam

Cream together all but apple butter and spread in a 7-1/2 x 11 rectangular Pyrex pan and pat gently and evenly into place. Bake for about 20 minutes at 350° F. When crust comes out of the oven, spread the apple butter (our local specialty) over top or substitute a fruit sweetened jam of your choice.

Combine ingredients in food processor or blender and then pour mixture over apple butter. Bake at 350° F. about 45 minutes until firm and tan. Let cool in pan on wire rack before slicing into squares and removing. Store in refrigerator if there are any left
