What’s your favorite pie? I have a particular love for my Mom’s Famous Coconut Cream Pie, and I always go for a big slice of Pumpkin Meringue Pie on Thanksgiving. If you ask my husband, he’ll tell you that apple pie is his absolute favorite. I love apple pie as well, but I particularly love Dutch Apple Pie, as that cinnamon sugar crumble is the perfect topping for the delicious apples below. With adding some chopped pecans, these Dutch Apple Pie Bars are the perfect easy apple pie bar recipe that brings together both of our preferences.

Here’s the easy steps (and a big shortcut!) to creating these easy, delicious Dutch Apple Pie Bars!

Step 1: Place the Crust in a 15″x10″ pan

One of my favorite short-cuts to making these bars is using a package of refrigerated pie crust. I personally love using refrigerated pie crusts, as it’s such a time-saver. For this crust you’ll let it come to room temperature, and remove from the packaging. Flour a flat surface, and place the pie crust rounds one on top of the other. With a floured rolling pin, roll out to a rectangle, approximately 17″ by 12″.

Step 2: Prep the Apples

In a large bowl, add the peeled and sliced apples. In a smaller bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg, and then sprinkle over the tops of the apples and stirring well to make sure all of the apples are evenly coated.

Step 4: Create the Pecan Streusel

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugars, and cinnamon. Add the cold butter pieces and mix together with a pastry blender or fork. Mixture should be crumbly. Add in the pecans, and mix together.

Step 5: Add the Pecan Streusel over the top of the Apples

Next, sprinkle the streusel evenly over the tops of the apples. Next, bake the bars for 30-35 minutes at 425 degrees or until golden brown. Keep an eye on the bars for the last 5 minutes or so, as the pecans tend to toast and become over-browned if left in the oven too long.

Step 6: Ice the Bars

Before slicing into squares, mix together some icing by combining powdered sugar and milk. Add the milk gradually to the powdered sugar and stir until it a medium thickness, but able to drizzle. Drizzle over the bars.
