Crumb Topped Apple Pie Bars

by Laura

When you think of apples, one of the logical places to go is apple pie! Tender, flaky crust paired with soft, juicy, cinnamon apple filling. It is another classic. Well, I have a twist on that classic today. These crumb topped apple pie bars are all that you would expect from an apple pie, but includes a sweet sugar glaze.

You can always lose the glaze and top with ice cream, if you prefer.  Either way they are divine! Keep in mind my tip from yesterday  – use a combination of apples in this recipe. My favorite is Granny Smith with Gala. I think they compliment each other well.

Also, the crust these crumb topped apple pie bars is a no roll crust. It comes out crumbly and you press it into the 9 x 13 pan. It makes this much easier to make than a regular pie crust.
