  • Combine flour, 1 cup butter, 3/4 cup white sugar, egg, baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a food processor; pulse until crumbled and easily formed into dough when pinched. Pour 3/4 of the dough into the prepared pan; press down with your hands until crust is even and well packed.

  • Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add apples, brown sugar, 1/2 cup white sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt; cook and stir until apples are softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in cornstarch; mix, adding more cornstarch if needed, until liquids are thickened.

  • Pour apple mixture onto crust; smooth with a spatula until even. Crumble remaining dough on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until crumbles on top are lightly brown, 30 to 40 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes; cut into bars.

Cook's Note:

If you don't have a food processor, you could use a hand beater to combine the crust ingredients.

I made this for a party, I won first place for it. I didn't have enough unsalted butter so I used shortening, turned out great. I also used a combination on apples, two granny smiths, two jonagolds and one honey crisp. Read More
