Apple Crisp Bars

My wonderful sister~in~law Laura sweetly shares her birthday with... Halloween! Ha ha... so we dress up & trick or treat with family in her neighborhood then settle in for a wonderful dinner prepared by my mom~in~law. Win win, candy, family & food! Since there's chocolate & candy galore, Laura asked for apple crisp & I was happy to oblige with these bars... Now I have no recipe for these, I just throw them together so bear with the measurements. More of anything, cannot hurt!!! :)

Sorry, no actual cut up bar pics :) All went!

Apple Crisp Bars

  • 1 pie crust (homemade or store bought)
  • 5 large baking apples, sliced then pieces cut in half (I used my fave~ Honeycrisp)
  • zest & juice of 1 lemon
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup AP flour
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp fresh nutmeg
  • 1 & 1/2 stick butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease/spray a rectangular baking dish with sides. 

Prepare the pie crust dough (if making homemade). Fit it into the bottom of the baking dish, set aside.

Prepare all of the apple slices. Place in a bowl & mix with the lemon zest & juice, set aside..

Mix the brown sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon & nutmeg together. With a pastry cutter or fork, cut in the butter until everything is lumpy & combined.

Pour the apple slices over the pie crust. Sprinkle the sugar/flour mixture over the apple.

Bake for 30 minutes or until the topping is browned. Allow to cool, then cut into squares. Enjoy!
