How to Make Apple Pie Bars

  • 4Combine 1 cup sugar, 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and nutmeg in bowl.
    Sprinkle over apples.

  • 8To transfer pastry to baking pan, fold pastry in half; fold in half again. Place folded corner at center of pan. Unfold pastry carefully.
  • 9Top pastry should be rolled on lightly floured surface slightly larger than bottom pastry to allow pastry to cover filling easily.
