Lets Eat

These are a delicious apple bar and we enjoyed them with a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream on the side. I prefer them heated first but my husband likes it straight from the fridge. Which ever way you like it, it's your choice, but make sure to make them sometime!

I am an apple lover and I always keep an eye out for recipes that look as good to me at this one did. I made some last week and have enjoyed them on their own, with ice cream and also with whipped cream. They are even good heated with ice cream. These are a must try and truly delicious!
