About this recipe: Better than apple pie, and can be served warm. These go very quickly when served with other bar cookies.
This recipe produced the best apple bars I have ever eaten. I made only one small change in the recipe. I substituted quick oatmeal for the cornflakes and found the texture and taste to be excellent. - 10 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
always a favorite for my family! My mom uses a different recipe and I combine the 2. I find the water and egg yolk to be too much liquid. I use 1 yolk plus enough MILK to MAKE 2/3cup. Mom uses shortening instead of butter but I can't tell the difference. You can also use vanilla instead of almond flavor for the glaze. I also make this on a cookie sheet instead of in a pan. You can make it bigger that way :-D - 25 Nov 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
They taste delicious, but a few things to remember: 1. On the bottom layer, make sure you leave a little upward edge with the dough, as you have to connect it with the top layer later. 2. WAY too much liquid for the crust, which completely threw off my recipe. I didn't realize it until too late (alas- should have read the previous reviewer). And I only used about 1/2 of the egg water mixture. I would also 1.5 times the crust ingredients, as I ran out of crust on top. So my presentation was awful due to the crust situation, but if you take 1 & 2 into consideration early on, I bet it would be awesome. It's basically apple pie bars. Sadly, I couldn't taste or sense the corn flakes. - 24 Sep 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
