#49, Apple Bars with Oatmeal Crumb Topping

A perfect autumn treat—all the flavors of apple pie, but unlike the more fragile pie, these bars are easily wrapped up for lunches and picnics.


I offered this recipe to the first 24 teachers/staff who could tell me 2 group of people to whom I’d recently given goodies. Nine responded. After that, students were the beneficiaries.

Butter up!
Butter up!
Basics. Cutting butter into flour.

The instructions in Magnolia call for a 9 x 12 inch pan. Mine is a little larger than that and it seemed too big for the amount of crust I would have. So, I chose a beautiful square pan.

Bottom cookie layer with apple filling. Ready for the topping.
Finale. Topping plus icing drizzle.

I am awaiting a photo of a single piece taken by a student to finish this up.

Sorry for the “BLAH” post. I’m tired. Need my afternoon espresso.
