If there is one thing that I have established here on ye old blog, it is that I have a deep affinity for apples. Remember that time when I was very pregnant with Landon and chaperoned Lily’s field trip to a local orchard?  Yeah, I think I came home with about 3 bushels of apples that day.  I was in full-blown nesting mode and probably made enough homemade applesauce to last us for the next couple years.  What can I say?  I love apples!  LOL

How to Make Apple Pecan Pie Bars

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 9×13 baking dish with non-stick spray. I like to line the dish with foil and spray the foil with non-stick spray for easy removal and cleanup.

Ready to Bake Apple Pecan Pie Bars

In a large bowl, use a hand mixer to cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla.

Add in the eggs, one at a time, and mix until well combined.

Adding Eggs to Batter

Over the same bowl, sift the flour and baking powder.

Sifting Flour over pie batter

Mix the wet and dry together until well combined. Pour 3/4 of the batter into the baking dish and press it out evenly on the bottom.

Spread pie crust in pan

Spread 1 1/2 cans of the apple pie filling all along the crust, and then sprinkle with all spice and the pecans.

Apple added to pie crust

Take the remaining batter and spoon it over the top of the pie filling, spread it out in random lumps.

Bake for 30-40 minutes, until the top is golden brown.

Set out to cool while you prepare the glaze.

In a small bowl, mix together the powdered sugar and heavy cream until well combined. Add more cream if you want a thinner consistency. Drizzle over the top of the dish.
