Apple Pie Bars

Pin It
Last week my husband and I took the grand kids to the apple orchard.  I made homemade applesauce ( and homemade apple butter (  With the leftover apples, I decided to make apple pie bars!

The ingredients for the crust:

1 cup softened butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ginger

Put all ingredients in the mixer and mix (use a dough hook).  Take the dough out and press it into the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 pan.  Refrigerate until ready to assemble the bars.

The ingredients for the apple filling:

6-8 apples, peeled, cored, and diced into small pieces
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1 tablespoon flour

Mix the ingredients and refrigerate until ready to assemble

The ingredients for the topping:

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup oats
1/2 cup flour
1 cup pecan pieces
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup brown sugar

Mix the ingredients together.

To assemble the apple pie bars:  Take the 9 x 13 pan out of the refrigerator.  Put the apples on top of the crust and put the topping on top of the apples.

Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until browned.  Remove the bars from the oven and let them cool.


1 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons lemon juice

Mix the lemon juice into the powdered sugar until it is the consistency that you can drizzle it on top of the apple bars.

These bars should be refrigerated.  Enjoy!  This recipe is listed on Foodie Friends Friday!
