This is pretty good, but there is a similar recipe on this site called "Apple Sheet Cake" by Barbara (not sure why it is called cake, it's nothing like a cake and very much like apple pie!) that is a little bit better. The dough is simpler and the filling is thickened. Either recipe is definitely worth a try though!
I halved the recipe and baked in a 9x9" pan. I used three large Cameo apples. I added a little flour with the apples as per other reviews and added just a touch of nutmeg. I wasn't completely sold on the end result but DH thought it was great. I'm thinking it would be better with sour apples. It really does need to cool in order to be bars. If you cut it hot, it is apple pie.
This is a really good recipe. I personally made them in a jellyroll pan using all the crust on the bottom and adding a crumb topping instead. I added 1/3c. flour so the filling wasn't too runny and used 2/3 brown sugar and 1/3 white in the filling. It received rave reviews at both my work and my husband's work. Thanx!
The crust is wonderful, it should be doubled though, and make sure your apples are thickened, you really don't want any juices. Also a nice plain drizzled icing over top works well.
Terrific recipe! I doubled the crust, and will probably use unsalted butter instead of shortening next time.
This is great for apple pie lover's! I tossed in 1/4 cup flour with apples to thicken juices and it was perfect! IF you have any leftover you can put cut bars in the fridge and take out as needed. Add spices to your taste! Good crust, too!
These are super delicious, but I was under the impression that this would be easier than making an actual pie and it wasn't. I still had to make the dough and roll it out. I imagine it wouldn't be too difficult to substitute a storebought pie crust, though, if one wanted something slightly simpler.
So yummy. A little bit of work but very worth it!
