Apple Pie Bars with a sweet vanilla drizzle… SO yummy and perfect for fall! Hello, Friends! It’s Cathy from Lemon Tree Dwelling, back to share some fall yumminess with you!!
When I think about fall, the first two flavors that come to mind are apple and pumpkin….and in honor of school starting here this week, I thought I’d start with apple!
To be fair, apples are one of those fruits you can eat year round…..and here at our Lemon Tree Dwelling, we tend to do just that! But there’s something about fall that makes all things apple taste even more delicious than usual….and these Apple Pie Bars are no exception!
They come together in no time at all and are the perfect dessert to serve at fall gatherings, school parties, or family dinners. Best of all, they can be made with either canned or homemade apple pie filling….and either way, they’re just as delicious! The BEST way to welcome in fall!
