Maple Pecan Apple Pie Bars

I make a lot of food. No surprise there. I make breakfasts, snacks, desserts, dinners, sauces, and things that fall somehow into the miscellaneous category. Some recipes turn out really really good. Some are eh, one time things. A lot are sad pitiful disasters that result in last minute take out.

And a select few are oh-my-gosh so freaking good I could cry.

Maple Pecan Apple Pie Bars

Remember when I said I nearly ate the very last of a recipe because it was so delicious and that I almost had to tell you about it without pictures? Luckily I saved a couple scraps to photograph for you. But really. I made a whole pan of these and basically ate the entire thing with a fork over the course of two days.

Couldn’t help it. They were THAT good! I’m making them again, right away. And you should too. You will not regret it!

This is my first recipe from your site! I made these for my husband and they are DELICIOUS!! I accidentally read the recipe wrong and used good quality maple syrup and the glaze is so yummy! I used 1 tsp-I don’t want to encourage changes to your recipe, I just wanted to let you know that maple syrup works in a pinch!! Also, how large did you slice your apples?

    Thanks so much for letting me know about the maple syrup secret!! These are a favorite at our house, it’s getting to be fall time and I can’t wait to whip up another batch!! Thanks Kenin! 🙂
