Apple Pie Bars (easy Step By Step)
Make crust: add flour & salt to food processor (you can also do this in a bowl with a pastry cutter)
1
Add butter and pulse just until butter is pea sized
2
And well distributed through flour then add ice cold water
3
And pulse just until crumbly and when pressed the dough comes together
4
Empty out into a pan lined with parchment paper
5
Press it down evenly
6
I like to use the parchment paper to help get the edges pressed - bake until set
7
Place peeled, cored & sliced apples into large bowl & toss with spices, lemon juice,vanilla & sugar
9
Make topping: wipe processor clean and add remaining flour
10
And butter and pulse a few times until combined
12
Add the pecans and pulse 2-3 more times
13
Place apples over crust with a slotted spoon leaving behind most of the juices
14
Sprinkle over topping evenly
15
until golden and bubbling
17
Crispy crunchy edges and topping with a delicious apple filling and buttery crust
18
Allow to fully cool then slice and enjoy
19
I served mine with a Spiced Salted Pecan Caramel but icecream is also perfect with them
