These apple crumb bars have a very nice buttery flavor which will take you back to the years when butter didn’t have a bad reputation and everyone used to love it. Apple, cinnamon and butter match perfectly and they fit the coming cool days very well.
These bars have a very lovely golden crunchy topping and outer crust while the inside is soft and moist as it is loaded with diced apples. I didn’t use anything else for the topping but you can sprinkle walnuts or hazelnuts on the top for an extra crunchy texture.
I just dust a little powderd sugar before serving the bars. You can do the same or choose another topping like cream or ice cream.
