Apple Pie Crumb Bars
This recipe is the best of an apple pie and crumb cake all in one. As a result, these apple pie crumb bars come out so delicious.
These apple pie bars are so easy to make and, always such a big hit with family and friends.
When visiting family in New England, these are requested every year when we go up in during one of the school vacations.
It’s not just the kids that love these but, the adults too. My sister says they are the best to have with her tea at night. I totally agree.
Most of the time I bake these during the beginning of the fall season. Right around the time school starts. Mid September.
My husband and kids enjoy going apple picking each year in the months of September and October.
So, there’s always a good selection to choose from at the orchard we visit around Long Island.
For this recipe I used one specific apple, the Gala apple. I did try others but this one worked the best for taste and texture for these bars.
If you scroll around the blog, you’ll see lots of different kinds of apple recipes from years ago and more recent ones. There are different apples used for each recipes, sometimes a mixture of apples. Like in this
Rustic Apple Crumble Pie, I used three different kinds of apples for the best taste and oh boy, that pie comes out so delectable each and every time we bake one.
Now, this recipe has become I guess you could say a staple around my house. My husband and kids love these so much I make them year round.
Great thing about apples are they’re in season year round. So, we can pick some up at our local farmers market or grocery store and bake a batch of these bars anytime of year.
You can use any of your favorite apples. I found that the Gala apples work best for these bars but, Granny Smith also work too. They are just a little tart and my family likes these bars on the sweeter side.
You could mix two different kinds as well. They will come out fantastic either way.
Have fun baking and enjoy every apple bite!
