    Apple Bars

    Made these recently for a church event...everyone wanted the recipe...so thought I would share here also. The recipe came from a quilting friend who recently passed away...she was an expert quilter/appliquer...did most by hand. I will think of her every time I make these.

    Apple Bars

    Crust:
    1-1/2 cups flour
    1/3 cup sugar
    1-1/2 tsp cinnamon
    cup butter, softened
    2 Tbls apple cider

    Filling:
    1 egg
    1-1/2 cups sour cream
    1 tsp lemon juice
    cup sugar
    cup flour
    4 cups cups chopped, peeled apples

    Topping:
    cup flour
    1/3 cup brown sugar
    tsp cinnamon
    1 cup chopped walnuts

    FOR CRUST: combine flour, sugar, cinnamon. Cut in butter with pastry blender. Mix in apple cider and press into 9x13 pan.
    FOR FILLING: combine egg, sour cream, lemon juice, sugar and flour. Fold in the apples. Spread over crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
    FOR TOPPING: mix together ingredients. Sprinkle over cake, and bake another 10 minutes.

    My variation: Drizzle caramel sauce over top of cake before serving.

    Option: Next time I make, I will probably do the topping with only the sugar, cinnamon and nuts, not the flour.

    That sounds wonderful. I've always believed that two things that should be shared are recipes and plants.

    Thanks for sharing.

    They sound very good. I would think the topping would need a bit of butter to hold it together if you use flour. I like crumb topping on many things. The caramel sauce is a nice addition.

    I love apple season. We live near a place called Apple Hill and I always look forward to going up several times each season for a variety of apples. Apple recipes are such a treat, this one is on my list, going to make it today. Thanks so much for sharing.

    The butter sounds like a good idea if going to use the flour....otherwise, just leaving the flour out is what I plan on doing the next time I make them. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Sounds like a lovely recipe and one that I could make with gluten free flour successfully.

    I used to have a recipe that was similar, but used cream cheese instead of sour cream and had sliced almonds too.
