Homemade Apple Pie Bars Recipe



For the crust:

1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 and 1/4 cup all purpose flour

For the filling:

4 cups apples pealed, corded, and thinly sliced

2 Tablespoons flour

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

For the topping:

1/2 cup brown sugar firmly packed

1/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup all purpose flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

6 Tablespoons chilled butter, cut into 1/2 inch squares


For the crust:

Preheat oven to 350º F. Line a 8 x 8 oven proof pan with parchment paper, leaving extra hanging over the ends, spray with cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add vanilla and mix until combined. Add flour and mix until combined and dough is crumbly.

Press dough evenly into bottom of prepared pan. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until dough is slightly puffed. Remove from oven and set aside, maintain oven temperature.

For the filling:

In a large bowl, combine apples, flour, cinnamon and sugar. Mix until apples are thoroughly coated. Arrange apples on baked crust.

For the topping:

In a medium bowl, mix together first five ingredients. With a pastry blender or two knives, cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Spread topping over apples in an even layer.

Bake uncovered at 350º F for 45 minutes, or until topping is golden and apple mixture is bubbly. Let cool, lift apple crisp using the extra parchment paper at the ends as handles, and cut into bars.
