Apple Pie Bars
If you love apple pie as much as I do (who doesn’t?) here is your apple pie fix that is easier and faster than a standard pie... but just as tasty. - Jenny Jones
- 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 Tablespoon sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil (I use avocado oil)
- 1/3 cup milk (low fat or whole milk)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 Tablespoons flour or Minute Tapioca
- 8 cups (2 pounds) Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored & sliced into 1/2 to 3/4-inch slices.
- Preheat oven to 375° F.
- Combine flour, sugar, & salt in a bowl.
- Add oil & milk all at once, stirring with a fork. By hand, divide dough in half and shape each half into a 4-inch circle.
- Roll one circle between 2 sheets of floured wax paper to about an 8" square and set aside.
- Pat the other circle into the bottom of an 8x8-inch ungreased or parchment paper lined square pan. (or you can roll it between wax paper first and place it in the pan, patting it to edges)
- Combine sugar, spices, and flour or tapioca in a large bowl.
- Add apples, combining well.
- Place into pan and top with second crust. Patch if needed but a few openings are okay.
- Brush with milk and sprinkle with 2 tsp. sugar. Poke a few holes in top crust with a sharp knife, .
- Bake about 50 minutes until top is golden. Cool. Cut into bars.
