Apple Pie Crumble Bars

I kind of did my own twist on this, and I was happy with the results. I have a yummy Taste of Home cookies recipe book, and I came across "Chocolate-Drizzled Cherry Bars" but for lack of cherry pie filling, we turned it into a fun harvest dessert and I used the pie filling that I put up last year. It was pretty delicious--a lot like a pie--and I liked the crumbles on top!

Apple Pie Crumble Bars

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1-1/4 cups butter, softened
  • 1 jar/can of apple pie filling
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats, sugar and butter until crumbly. Set aside 1-1/2 cups for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture into an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes or until edges begin to brown.
  • Carefully spread pie filling over crust. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Bake 20-25 minutes longer or until edges and topping are lightly browned.
  • Cool completely on a wire rack. Yield: 3 dozen.
