Katies Easy Apple Bars
Katies Easy Apple Bars
My sister Mary gave me this recipe some 30 years ago. She got the recipe from someone she worked with and everyone in the office called them; “Katies Mom Apple Bars.” I don’t know Katie or her mom but Katies apple bars are delicious. Katies Easy Apple Bars are called easy because this recipe has very few ingredients, two of which are packaged crescent rolls. You could easily substitute crescent roll sheets when making this recipe which would make these apple bars even easier.
When making any apple recipe I like to combine two or three different kinds of apples. The only real rule of thumb to this method is to use the same type of apples for instance; use two or three different kinds of cooking apples. Several types of cooking apples can be combined together to make a pie because they tend to cook the same. Don’t combine eating apples with cooking apples to make a pie unless you like a firmer apple when baked. Apples and how you use them is a personal preference. Some people like a firmer baking apple, while others prefer a softer texture apple for baking. Find a combination of apples you like and make your apple desserts using that combination.
With basically only two ingredients to this recipe and one of those being apples, the second ingredient, crescent rolls, is very important. Pillsbury Crescent Rolls can be used in many different recipes and here on T2T, we have our favorites. From Awesome Vegetable Pizza, to Mini Cheesy Dogs along with this recipe for Easy Apple Bars, it proves just how versatile crescent rolls really are.
