Sour Cream Apple Bars

Sour Cream Apple Bars

Crust:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon allspice

Filling:

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 3 apples (2 cups), unpeeled, chopped

Preheat the oven to 350°.  Combine the softened butter and brown sugar in a mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until creamy.  Gradually add the remaining crust ingredients until well combined.

Press half of the crust into an ungreased 9×13 pan and bake for 8-10 minutes until lightly browned.

Mix all of the filling ingredients by hand.  Pour the filling over the partially baked crust.  Crumbled the remaining crust on top and press down lightly.

Bake for 30-35 minutes until the top is golden brown.  Cool completely before cutting into bars (or carefully sneak one out).

Store in the refrigerator.
