Apple Bars

So, as I was driving home from my 1st day of work, I was thinking about this dessert. It was cold and rainy, and warm apples with cinnamon just sounded good! I love this recipe, and My Grandma Rock sent it along.

Apple Bars

1 1/2 C flour

1/2 tsp salt

1 C sugar, divided

1/2 C butter

4-5 C sliced, peeled apples

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp cinnamon

1 egg, lightly beaten

1/3 C evaporated milk

1 tsp vanilla

3/4 C chopped pecans

1 1/3 C flaked coconut

In a bowl, combine flour, salt and 1/3 C sugar. Cut in butter. Press into bottom of greased 9x13 baking pan. Arrange apples on top of crumbs. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Combine 1/3 C sugar with cinnamon, sprinkle over apples and bake for 20 minutes at 375. Meanwhile, in small bowl, combine remaining ingredients (1/3 C sugar, evaporated milk, egg, vanilla, pecans, coconut) and spoon over baked apples. Bake another 20 minutes. Cut and serve while warm.

There is some missing because our priorities were in line, eat, then blog. :)
