Apple Pie Bars

Apple Pie Bars

We are a bulk buying family, especially when it is seasonal. Now it is apple season! When I asked hubs what he would like me to bake with the many pounds of apples we just purchased, he said in excitement, “Apple Pie! ” I have a wonderful recipe that I have been wanting to bake from Taste of Home, this is a double pie recipe, that can be cut into bars. Flaky, buttery, crumbly apple pie, but baked in a rectangular dish. It’s perfect warmed with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or drizzled with a caramel sauce.
