I have to say it tasted very good, but it was a little too buttery on the bottom. I don't know what happened, but I followed exactly. My batter never got mealy like I was expecting. I added some flour to thicken it up some and then pressed and baked it for 15 minutes before I put the apples on. Also, the only thing I would change is to not use all the topping. That may be why the other review was that way. I would leave out about 1/4 cup. That way there won't be the extra powder on the top.

I was disappointed in the outcome. :( For the most part, the topping just sat on top of the finished bars, in it's original powdery state. I used 'fat-free' sour cream, and I'm wondering if it needed the full fat in order for the topping to dissolve and set properly? For that reason, I won't actually assign any 'stars', but hopefully that will help anyone else that might like to try using fat-free cream. It did smell wonderfully delicious as it was baking.
