Flaky Apple Pie Bars


Apple pie bars are a fun size for a treat. These apple bars are a favorite of all time, ideal for after-school snacks, coffee with friends, or as an easy dessert. I was looking for an apple pie, but I didn’t want a classic pie. I wanted something portable and something a little deeper. I have been making this recipe for eons. It is one of my favorite combinations of crust/fruit. It is perfect for a crowd, so if they want, they can walk around with a slice of ‘apple’ in their hand. For a fancy dinner party, you can serve this with vanilla bean ice cream.

2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
2 tbsp white sugar
(2) egg yolks
½ cup milk
½ tsp salt

1 ½ cups confectioners’ sugar
