Apple Crumble Bars

Even though this is generally a fall recipe, I didn't care. Apple crumble just sounded amazing, and I couldn't turn it down. Using the canned apple pie filling saves a bit of time and it still tastes great! The baking takes a bit of time, but you can sit and enjoy the company of others during that time! The prep doesn't take too long.

Apple Crumble Bar-adapted from Betty Crocker's Fall Baking
Total Time: 3 hours 40 minutes
Makes 24 bars

Crust

  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
Filling
  • 2-21 ounce cans
Crumble
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 stick butter, cut into small pieces
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease 13x9 inch pan with cooking spray. In large bowl, beat crust ingredients with an electric mixer on low until mixture looks like coarse crumbs and press into pan. Bake 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool about 30 minutes and reduce heat to 350 degrees.

Spoon pie filling evenly over crust. In a medium bowl, mix 1 cup flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add butter and mix with a pastry cutter until crumbly. Sprinkle mixture over filling.

Bake 40 minutes or until lightly brown. Cool completely, about 2 hours. Cut into 6x4 rows.
