I wowed the members of my meeting today when I brought in these bars. Totally easy to make. Did as a couple of others recommended - used my food processor for the pastry. Added the egg/milk mix in quick pulses to avoid over-beating. The dough was a little wet in parts but I just sprinkled extra flour on it - no big deal. I rolled the dough out on waxed paper that I had laid over a glass cutting board. (Putting a splash of water between the board and the paper eliminates any shift while rolling out the pastry). When it was the right size/shape, I placed the baking tray (a jelly roll pan) over the pastry & flipped the whole lot (glass cutting board, pastry & bake tray) - just had to peel off the wax paper - really easy. I agree that the size of apple can vary hugely so why not just say "10 cups or about 10 apples". In my case, I used large Honey Crisp and only needed 8 to give 10 c. I thought the amount of sugar called for was perfect. I cooked the apple mixture in a saucepan for about 10 minutes on low heat to soften them a bit. Baking time was right on. Finally, after baking and cooling, I drizzled on an icing of Confectioners sugar & milk, just for presentation. The taste of the apples really come through,I will be making this again for sure. Thanks to poster Nancy.
