Crumb Topped Apple Pie Bars

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

You can always skip the glaze and top with ice cream instead, if you prefer.  Either way, these bars are divine! Keep in mind my tip from yesterday  – use a combination of apples in this recipe. It just makes them better. My favorite combination is Granny Smith with Gala. I think they compliment each other well. You have some tart flavor with sweet.

Also, the crust these crumb topped apple pie bars is a no roll crust. It comes out crumbly and then you press it into the 9 x 13 pan. It makes this much easier to make than a regular pie crust. No rolling or cutting needed here. Then you top it and bake it all together.
