I opened a can of worms the other day when I mentioned working at an Apple Farm in NY. I was overwhelmed with the number of apple recipes that I had collected from those days. Here is a great bar cookie that all kids like.

How to Make Apple Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl, beat together butter and sugar until fluffy; stir in vanilla and egg.

    In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and nutmeg.
  2. Add flour mixture to butter mixture; mix thoroughly.

    Fold in apples and nuts if using.
  3. Spread batter in a greased 9" x 9" baking pan.

    Bake at 350-degrees for 30-35 minutes.

    Cool and cut into squares.
  4. When I leave the nuts out, I often add in 3/4 cup of raisins in it's place.
