Wow, I cannot believe fall is here. I love the fall weather, not quite as much as summer, but I do enjoy the sunny and crisp cool days in Maryland. For me fall is all about apples, pumpkins, cranberries etc. By the way, have you had my easy pumpkin donuts? You should check them out, so moist and delicious. And oh! They are baked!
Apple season is here, I enjoy apple cider, apple cider donuts, apple pies, and just apples by themselves. I also love to make my mom’s apple cake (bizcocho de manzana), a classic that she used to make every Sunday!
Today, I am making apple pie bars, a take on a traditional apple pie. While these are definitely not Spanish, I am inspired by my mom. Her favorite pie is apple pie. Every time she visits the States, she requests apple pie. lol.
I want to share the recipe with you because it’s so good. Super buttery and delicious. These bars are a true bite of fall. For this recipe, I am using sweet apples, that’s why I am not adding any sugar in the filling. If you swap one of the apples for a tart apple such a granny smith, you may have to add up to 2 tablespoons of sugar.
Let’s jump into the recipe!
