Hi Friends! How was your weekend? Gorgeous, I hope! We are having a beautiful fall here in Kansas. Usually, this time of year the winds get chilly and I do not leave the house without a sweater or even a jacket. This year, I can count the chilly sweater-days on one hand. It’s been warm and sunny. The trees are turning fast and our backyard is covered in leaves. My girls know how to appreciate nature so they have been gathering the prettiest ones and arranging them in little vases. Their brother, as a boy would, runs through the piles of leaves and throws them in the air, giggling the whole time! I love this time of year so I am trying to soak all of those moments as much as I can.

Recently, I received a message from one of my readers asking for an apple pie dessert that would not require making the traditional crust. She asked for a delicious apple pie like dessert yet easy. Apparently, the pie crust is scary not only for me but also for some of you. With pie crust it’s like do or die. Either is perfect, flaky and butter or it’s soggy, hard and all around not good. There can be no in-betweens.

Enter Apple Pie Bars.

The filling is made of sweet cinnamon apple slices. When you toss the slices with sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice, the apples will release some juice. You need to add it all with the apple slices over the crust. It will create a caramel sauce that will bind the fruit.

Hi Friends! Happy Sunday! I hope yours is relaxing and filled with delicious food. My Hubby is making his famous pizza tonight so I do not have to worry about dinner. Instead, this whole morning I have been whipping up desserts like nobody’s business. I made three fantastic treats that I know you will love. I can’t wait to share them with you this week!

But today, I am sharing something that has been in my draft for a while. Since Halloween is on Friday (omg, November is almost here!!!) and candy is on all of our minds, these bars seem only appropriate to share.

If I had to choose the candy I want to find in my trick-or-treat bag, it would be Butterfingers and Reese’s cups. No Tootsie Rolls or hard candy, please.

But, since I am an adult and I do not get to trick-or-treat anymore and my kids seem to be well skilled in hiding the best candy from me – I decided to make it from scratch. In a bar form. Because the more – the better.
