EASY Apple Pie Bars - Crazy Cooking Challenge

I have to be honest, I wasn't really excited about this month's Crazy Cooking Challenge. No offense to the pie lovers out there - I'm just not a pie person usually. My brother on the other hand, would rather have pie than cake for his birthday! Weird, right?! 

I asked my kiddos for help with this one and this is what we came up with ....



EASY Apple Pie Bars
Inspired from this recipe
Yield: 20-24 servings

1 tube (8 oz.) crescent dough
1 can (21 oz.) apple pie filling
½ cup Bisquick
¼ cup packed brown sugar
2 tbsp. cold butter
4 tbsp. powdered sugar
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
1-2 tbsp. milk

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Unroll crescent rolls and press into an ungreased 9x13-in. baking pan, sealing seams and covering the bottom as necessary. Bake for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, place the apple pie filling in a medium bowl and chop up the apple pieces with a butter knife. Set aside.

In a small bowl, combine the Bisquick and brown sugar. Cut in butter using a fork or pastry blender, until mixture is crumbly.

Top crescent dough with the chopped apple pie filling. Crumble the Bisquick, brown sugar and butter mixture evenly over the top.

Bake for another 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely.

Mix powdered sugar, cinnamon and 1 tbsp. of milk (add more milk if needed to thin out). Drizzle over the top of the bars. 

To serve, cut into squares.

  1. Hmmm. I'll have to try that some time. I'd always rather have pie than cake, and I probably shouldn't have either one. :-) But these look yummy!
