My Recipe Book and Apple Bars

Once again challenged for a post-Bible study dessert, I did what all great cooks do: opened my recipe book.

Yes, all my important recipes are taped to inside of the kitchen cupboards. It’s the only way for me to keep track of the recipes I find on the internet that I really like, and besides, I wouldn’t have anything else on those cupboards otherwise. From there I retrieved my recipe for fruit bars:

The Base:

1/2 C. Butter

1 C. Brown Sugar (This time, I misread the recipe and used white sugar. Still turned out fine.)

1 1/2 C. Flour

1/2 TSP Baking Soda

1 1/2 C. Oats

To spice it up, I added some hazelnut syrup and cinnamon.


The Middle:

2 C. Fruit (Apples in this case)

1/2 C. Sugar

In the Cut

I use half of the base on the bottom, then layer the apples. Because I used apples, I busted out caramel topping to layer on the apples. It works on muffins! Then I use the rest of the base on top and bake for about thirty minutes The results:

Delicious; it was like a sweet bread with apples.
