The Best Apple Pie Bar! Flaky, buttery, crumbly apple pie, but baked in a rectangular dish.
Ingredients
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1-1/4 cups cold butter, divided
  • 5 to 6 cups thinly sliced peeled Apples
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • I added 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats, brown sugar and baking soda; cut in 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside 2 cups for topping. Press remaining crumbs into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Arrange apples over top, sprinkle cinnamon over apples; set aside.
  2. In a saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, water, vanilla and remaining butter. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thick and bubbly; spread over apples. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs.
  3. Bake at 350° for 35-45 minutes or until top is lightly browned. Yield: 3-4 dozen.
