Apple Squares

Ingredients:
– 1 cup flour
– 1 teaspoon baking powder
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
– 1/4 cup butter, melted
– 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
– 1/2 cup white sugar
– 1 egg
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1/2 cup chopped apple
– 1/2 cup walnuts
– 2 tablespoons white sugar
– 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×9 inch pan. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon; set aside.
2. In a large bowl, mix together melted butter, brown sugar and a 1/2 cup of white sugar with a wooden spoon until smooth. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Blend in the flour mixture evenly into the prepared pan. In a small bowl, stir together the remaining cinnamon and sugar; sprinkle over the top of the bars.
3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in oven; finished bars should spring back when lightly touched. Cool in the pan, and cut into squares.
