Lemon Square Apple Pie

Lemon Square Apple Pie

“Lemon Square Apple Pie”

I was asked to bring a dessert to an event. I asked two of my friends who were going what their favorite desserts were (to help me know what my Mom should buy). They said “Lemon Squares” and “Apple Pie” and that is when I got the idea to make a dessert myself – combining both desserts into one. I was surprised how good it came out. I was expecting it to be a total flop, but it was really good and my friends loved it.


5 eggs
2.5 cups white sugar
2.5 cups all purpose white flour
2 juiced lemons
4 green apples, sliced thinly, but not too thin
1 lemon zested (or any citrus except lime)
1 tsp salt
1 cup butter
1 Tbl cinnamon
2 pre-made pie crust


Prepare the lemon square part of the pie…

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Blend together all the butter with 2 cups of flour and half a cup of sugar
  3. Press all of that into the bottom of your ungreased 9×13 glass baking dish
  4. Bake for 18 minutes or until they are hard and gold looking
  5. Whisk together 1.5 cups of sugar and 0.25 cups of flour and then add 4 eggs and the juice from 2 lemons
  6. Pull the dough part out of the oven and pour the liquid ingredients over it and bake for an additional 15 minutes at 350 degrees

While #6 is oven, start preparing the apple part of the pie…

  1. In a small bowl whisk together the last egg and 1 Tbl water until it is consistent throughout
  2. Then use pastry brush to spread enough of the mixture in #7 over the pie crust to cover it all, but do not use it all
  3. In another bowl have your sliced apples and you want to make sure they are a little moist with “apple-ness”
  4. Mix the half cup of sugar and the 1/4 cup of all purpose flour and the one teaspoon of salt and the one teaspoon of cinnamon and the lemon zest and then coat all over the apples until evenly coated
  5. Place the coated apples (#10) into the prepared pie crust
  6. Remove the lemon squares from the oven and slice them into good size portions
  7. Smash the lemon squares into the pie (on top of the apples) using a large spoon.
  8. Get the second pie crust, remove it from its tin, lay out on a cutting board, and slice into strips around 0.5 inches wide
  9. Then coat the strips individually in the egg wash from #7
  10. Weave the strips on top of the lemons (the pie)
  11. Bake it all in the oven for one hour
  12. When it is done refrigerate for one hour
  13. Serve with vanilla bean ice cream at room temperature!
