Sweet Pastry Apple Bars

I found this recipe at my friend Stacie's blog. She called them Apple Pie Bars, however, I already have something called that on my blog and these are totally different. So, I changed the name to avoid confusion. Anyway, these are just so yummy. They come together quickly and definitely rival Apple Pie for me.

Sweet Pastry Apple Bars

sweet pastry

2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 egg, beaten

apple filling

1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 t cinnamon
4 cups baking apples (about 3 medium) peeled and sliced. (I used Fuji, it is what I had)

glaze

2 cups powdered sugar
3 T milk
1 t almond extract (I used 1/2 almond 1/2 vanilla)

preheat oven to 350. To prepare the crust, mix flour, sugar, salt and baking soda together in a medium bowl. Cut in the butter using a pastry cutter or two knives until you have pea-sized crumbles. Gently mix in the egg. Press 2/3 of the crust into a GREASED 9x13 pan. Set aside.

To prepare apple filling, combine flour sugar and cinnamon and toss with the apples. Spread the apples over the crust. Sprinkle the reserves 1/3 of the crust over the top. Bake for 40 minutes. Allow to cool completely. Prepare the glaze by mixing powdered sugar, milk and almond extract. Drizzle the glaze over the top and allow to harden. Cut into bars and serve.
