I have made this recipe twice in the last week and need to stop now. It is too good to resist & I am trying to put as many into the kids lunches as possible to get them out of the house! These bars are so yummy. They puff up as they cook and the top gets crackly and crisp while the inside is soft and gooey. They have a bit of a fall feel to them, which I always love.
1 cup melted butter
2 cups white sugar
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 cups peeled, cored and diced apples
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x13 pan.
Mix the butter, sugar and egg until creamy. Add in the flour, soda and cinnamon and mix well. Stir in the apples and walnuts. Spread the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake for about 50 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center. Remember, the outside will be crispy and look done while the middle might still be gooey!
