Potluck Apple Pie Bars Recipe

Potluck Apple Pie Bars Recipe

I use apple from our own apple trees to make this dessert. It's a big hit at potlucks as well as with my family.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups shortening
  • 4 egg yolks, beaten
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • FILLING:
  • 1 cup crisp rice cereal
  • 8 cups sliced peeled tart apples (about 9 medium)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons milk

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt; cut in the shortening until crumbly.
  • 2. Combine egg yolks and milk; gradually add to crumb mixture, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Divide in half.
  • 3. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 15-in. x 10-in. rectangle. Line a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan with one rectangle; sprinkle with cereal.
  • 4. Arrange apples over cereal. Combine the sugar, flour and cinnamon; sprinkle over apples. Top with remaining pastry; cut slits in top. Brush with egg whites.
  • 5. Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely on a wire rack. In a bowl, combine confectioners' sugar and enough milk to achieve drizzling consistency. Drizzle over bars. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 3-4 dozen.
