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

  1. To make filling, combine the apples, juice, cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom in a large pan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Lower heat and cook and stir until apples soften, 3-5 minutes. Mix the cornstarch and sugar well, then stir into the pan. Cook and stir till thick and bubbly, about 1 minute. Cool slightly.
  2. Make crust: Blend the butter and sugar well, then add the eggs and remaining ingredients until well mixed.
  3. Press 2/3 of crust mixture into a greased 10x15 inch pan.
  4. Spread apple filling over. Crumble remaining crust on top.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes till golden. Great with vanilla ice cream!
  6. Cool and cut into bars.
