Apple Pie Bars

apple-pie-bars-with-vanilla-icing

When I went to the cafeteria at school, I’d always take an apple or 2 or 3 with me when I left.

Since I did that every time, I ended up moving out of the dorms with 10 extra apples.

I don’t like to waste food, so of course, apple pie was my first thought.  I was feeling a little more creative, though, so I made apple pie bars instead.

These are great…every slice is like a mini pie.  The crust is super thin and the filling isn’t overwhelmingly sweet and they would taste awesome with ice cream.  I suggest making them when you want to make pie for a big crowd, but pie won’t serve enough.
