These are as easy as it gets! Also great with any kind of fruit filling.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Love apple pie? This fantastic fall dessert is basically apple pie in bar form. There's a delicious shortbread crust, that's smothered in apple pie filling. Sprinkled on top is a buttery crumble that's filled with brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Yum! Serve hot with a scoop of ice cream (they may break apart, though) or let them cool completely for a tasty handheld fall treat. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
