Simply stated, I love fall!
I adore everything about it, from the lower temps to the warm fuzzy sweaters!
When the weather turns just a hair cooler I’m all over soup recipes, snuggling with a cuddly blanket and nesting for winter.
These apple pie bars with crumb topping add just the right touch of sweetness to dinner or make a great breakfast treat.
Want to know a secret?
This recipe doesn’t require fresh apples, just canned apple pie filling. Technically they taste great all year round, but my fall lovin’ self says now’s the time to try them out!
This is such a quick goodie to take to potluck meals or throw together in a hurry for a spontaneous gathering with friends and family.
Happy fall y’all!
