Apple Pie Sugar Cookie Bars

September 17, 2015
Is it safe to say that fall is here yet?  It was 85 here today, but, there are some leaves turning a little smidgen brown, so,  I'm saying, yes.  Fall is here. It's official.  Get ready for pumpkin everything, lots of soups and of course, apples!

We are seriously apple eaters here.  There is currently a  million (give or take) pounds of them in my fridge from our annual apple picking trip last weekend.  I am  hoping to get a few recipes from them for you guys, but, my kids may just inhale them before the chance arrives. I'm crossing my fingers.

For now though, we have canned apples. Yes, not nearly as good as fresh, but, tasty, no less. Especially, when you pair it up with sugar cookie dough, brown sugar and caramel. These are such good stuff, people.
Super easy and will satisfy that fall-eating craving that you've been having in no time at all.

Happy Fall Everyone!

{side note:  the below recipe calls for a 21 oz can of apple pie filling.  It will work fine, but, if desired, you can use a bit less.  I used about 3/4 of the can (it seems like enough) for ours and we were good to go}
