I am not an expert baker or cook and I don't normally write reviews unless a recipe really stands out. These apple bars are so good. I did change the recipe to suite my personal taste by using 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup of white sugar instead of 1/2 cup white sugar. I also added 1/2 tsp. of nutmeg and 1/4 tsp ground cloves. I mixed the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves together before putting it on top of the apples. I left off the corn flakes because I didn't have any. I was worried this would leave liquid and the bottom crust soggy but it did not.
My only complaint about this is the difficulty I had with the crust. It was very sticky and difficult to work with. I rolled it on a sheet of floured parchment paper and turned it upside down on the pan. I had to use a lot of flour to not get it to stick to everything and I rolled it very thin to get it to the size I needed it. It turned out well and I was able to seal the top crust to the bottom crust.
This recipe is a keeper. I will keep in mind though that this a time consuming recipe dealing with rolling out the crust and peeling and slicing the apples.
I wish it had an addition for a glaze recipe, I had to look that up. I used 1 cup confectioners sugar, 6 tsp. hot water, 1 tsp. vanilla and drizzled over the top after removing it from the oven.
