Sour Cream Apple Bars
This recipe came from Your Home Based Mom. This time of year we have lots of apples to eat up and this recipe jumped out and me when I saw the combination of sour cream and apples, I love these to ingredients together. My bars turned out slightly different from your home based mom's; I realized halfway through the bake time that I had forgotten the pecans so I hurried and sprinkled them on the top. It worked though and they were delish!
1 c. butter, softened
1 c. firmly packed brown sugar
2 c. uncooked quick cooking oats
1 c. flour
1 c. chopped pecans
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. allspice
1 c. sour cream
3/4 c. sugar
2 T. flour
2 medium (about 2 cups) apples, unpeeled, shredded
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine butter and brown sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add remaining crust ingredients and beat until well mixed.
Press HALF of crust mixture onto bottom of ungreased 13 x 9 pan. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until light golden brown.
While crust is baking combine the filling ingredients; mix well. Gently pour the filling over the hot, partially baked crust. Crumble the remaining crust mixture over the top of the fill and press down lightly.
Bake for an additional 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the center is set. Cool. Cut into bars. Store refrigerated
