Happy Hump Day!
Who likes pie? Apple pie to be exact. Quite a while ago when we used to go apple picking every year I would make lots of apple pies. I used to freeze them and have them ready to bake at a moments notice. I loved all that. I don’t make apple pie that often anymore. But this dessert tastes just like apple pie and it feeds more people than a pie would!
This was so good! It disappeared pretty quickly!
Apple Streusel Bars
- 2 c. flour
- 1/2 c. sugar
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 c. real butter, softened (no substitutions!)
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/2 c. white sugar
- 1/4 c. flour
- 1 tsp. cinnamon (I used about 3 teaspoons.. I LOVE cinnamon)
- 4 c. (about 3 medium) sliced, peeled baking apples (I used 4 Braeburn apples)
- 2 c. powdered sugar
- About 3 Tbsp. milk (whole milk is best)
- 1 tsp. almond extract
To prepare apple filling, combine flour, sugar, and cinnamon. Toss with apples and spread apples out on prepared crust. Sprinkle reserved crust mixture over apples evenly and bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes . When finished, allow to cool completely.
I am not kidding when I wrote that this tastes like apple pie! Make it and taste for yourself!
