Apple Crumb Bars

I found this recipe on the Tasty Kitchen, I started to make it and half way through I got a little bit nervous that it might be really dry. Thankfully I was wrong, they were really good and tasted a lot like apple pie but so much easier to eat!

3 cups All-purpose Flour
¾ cups Packed Brown Sugar
¼ cups White Sugar
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
¼ teaspoons Of Salt
1 cup (2 Sticks) Cold Unsalted Butter, Cut Into Small Pieces
1 whole Egg


½ cups Granulated Sugar
2 teaspoons Cornstarch
4 whole Medium-sized Apples Peeled, Cored, And Grated (I used granny smith)

Heat oven to 375. Grease a 9x13 pan.
In a mixing bowl combine the flour, brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon and salt. Mix together well. Work in the butter and egg with your hands or a pastry blender until it forms small clumps and no flour is remaining. Press half of the mixture into the bottom of the pan.

For the filling combine the grated apple, first squeeze out the extra liquid from the apples. Then combine the sugar and cornstarch then add to the apples and combine well. Spread this mixture out evenly over the crust. Crumble the remaining flour mixture on top of the filling. Bake for 30 minutes of until the tops are golden brown. Cool before cutting.
