    Kaarin's Note:

    This is best with a firm apple. Easier than pie since you just press the crust into the pan.

      The only reason I'm not giving this 5 stars is because the crust was much too "wet" after using 3 cups of flour; I ended up using a total of 5 cups to get it the right consistency (moist but crumbly). Next time I will cut down the butter to 1/2 cup and use the 3 cups flour and I think it will be just fine and there will be plenty of crust for the bottom and top. I used about 7+ cups of Macintosh apples, sliced thick, and not cooked too long so they didn't turn to mush. I will use more apple next time. I only used 1/4 t. nutmeg (not a fan) and increased the cinnamon to 2 t. After baking, the apple mixture firmed up perfectly! This is a delicious bar served warm! UPDATE: Second time around I used 1/2 cup of butter, but still used an additional 3/4 c. of flour. I've changed my review to 5 stars as these are DELICIOUS and simpler to make than the ones where you have to roll out the crust. This is definitely a "keeper" recipe and I will make often during apple season.
