Apple Pie Bars recipe

Delicious and great to please a large group of apple pie lovers. Refrigerate the crust ingredients for 1/2 hour for easier rolling!

I made this and my family AND coworkers loved it. I drizzled on the vanilla frosting and added cinnamin to the dough as well. Then I sprinkled some carmels in with the apples. My coworkers paid $1 for each square to raise money for united way and all asked for the recipe. I used 3 diff. kinds of apples: granny smitch, red delicious and Honey crisp. AMAZING
I had to bake mine almost twice as long as it says, because the apples were piled about 5" deep! So you don't need that many apples. But it is VERY good - warm with ice cream - yum.
I have to agree with other reviewers that this crust is excellent! I made it for a women's ministry group and it was a big hit. I didn't need as many apples so I was glad the recipe translated into cups. I saved a few bars for my husband and me. And when you serve it warm with a little vanilla ice cream? I'm tellin' YOU! This is good.
When mixing up the dough, I added 1/4 cup powdered sugar to sweeten it a little. The dough was easy to roll out between 2 sheets of waxed paper, but it was a bit difficult to maneuver the pastry to the baking pan. I had just enough dough for the bottom and top crusts. I used 3 cans of apple pie filling instead of fresh apples, and I added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon to the apple pie filling. I didn't use any drizzle on the top, but instead, left it plain. It was very good. I will try fresh apples next time.
I made the bars the night before and served the next day. The bars set up really nice overnight. I would make these again. I served a big crowd with these had many compliments and requests for recipe.
Super simple and BEST tasting crust ever! The dough was little tricky rolling out! I added vanilla to the icing too for an additional warm fall flavor!
As others have said, the crust was a little tricky to work with. I probably should've set my butter and cream cheese out to soften a little more so they blended better. Instead of the teaspoon of cinnamon, I used 1/2 cinnamon and 1/2 pumpkin pie spice. I thought it gave it a nice depth of flavor. Brought it to a friend's house and got rave reviews. All the guys had seconds. lol
very good and easy to prepare.
Crust is one that I will use over and over again for other items. Fabulous recipe.
