"These are a compilation of several recipes. I wanted something that would taste like apple pie but would serve more than eight people. Instead of the cream cheese icing, you can drizzle these with caramel ice cream topping - they're great either way!"

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 F.

TO MAKE THE CRUST


Step 2

Mix dry ingredients together with a fork or whisk in mixing bowl.

Step 3

Drizzle in oil, butter and milk and continue to stir until dough forms.

Step 4

Press evenly into half sheet pan (18x13), coming halfway up the sides.

TO MAKE THE FILLING


Step 5

In a large bowl, toss sliced apples, lemon juice, sugars, flour, cinnamon and allspice.

Step 6

Spread filling evenly over crust. It will look very full, but will cook down.

TO MAKE THE STREUSEL


Step 7

Mix together flour, sugar, oats and nuts; cut in butter until loose and crumbly.

Step 8

Add egg and mix until crumbly dough forms.

Step 9

Crumble streusel dough evenly over filling.

Step 10

Bake at 350F for 60 minutes, or until bubbly around edges.

Step 11

Allow to cool at least one hour before adding glaze.

Step 12

For the glaze: Beat softened butter and cream cheese together with whisk or mixer; add in sugar and vanilla extract and continue to mix slowly until creamy.

Step 13

Add in milk until desired consistency forms. (it should be about the consistency of cinnamon roll frosting)

Step 14

Using whisk or spoon, drizzle glaze evenly over top of baked and cooled bars. Allow to set 30 minutes before serving.

I made half a recipe when my sister came up for her birthday. Wanted to make something special for her birthday. This and a nice cup of Apple Chai Tea made a great breakfast for us!

If you love apple desserts then this is one to make. They were the perfect dessert for Thanksgiving. Especially loved the glaze on top!
