How to Make Apple Bars
- 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.
- Add flour mixture to butter mixture; mix thoroughly.
Fold in apples and nuts if using.
- Spread batter in a greased 9" x 9" baking pan.
Bake at 350-degrees for 30-35 minutes.
Cool and cut into squares.
- When I leave the nuts out, I often add in 3/4 cup of raisins in it's place.
