Apple Walnut Bars

 Apple Walnut Bars
If you need a homespun snack or bake sale treat that can be assembled in a hurry, try these moist nutty bars. The squares are sweet, flavorful and loaded with chopped apple and nuts. Best of all, they won't break the bank because they cost only 15¢ per bar. —Jennifer Dzubinski San Antonio, Texas
