Apple Pie Filling
1 cup butter, melted
2 cups brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp kosher salt
1 cup SKOR Toffee Bits
2 cups Granny Smith apples, peeled and chopped
½ cup flour
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup butter, melted
1) Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat a 13×9-inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Line the pan with parchment paper.
2) In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. Press the mixture evenly and firmly into the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Bake crust for 8 minutes, remove from oven and set aside.
3) For the apple filling, in a large bowl, whisk melted butter and brown sugar until combined. Whisk in eggs and vanilla extract until smooth. Add flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, SKOR bits and chopped apples. Stir just until flour has disappeared. Spread over baked graham crust.
4) For the streusel topping, in a medium bowl combine flour, brown sugar, sugar and melted butter until streusel is crumbly. Sprinkle streusel evenly overtop apple brownies. Bake for 40-45 minutes until topping is golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Once cool, refrigerate for easier cutting.
Yield: 25-30 Apple Pie Bars
