Cheddar Apple Bars

I really look forward to the weekends but mine are turning out to be so busy that they fly right by. I did, however, get some time to make Cheddar Apple Bars but had to wait until this morning to post about it.

This is another great recipe for using any apples you have hanging around. The filling consists of simmered apples layered between a cheddar-oat crumble. The cheese adds a subtle tang to the sweet apples and it tastes reminiscent of apple crisp or pie, just in bar form.

I would make these again because I usually have all the ingredients on hand. Also, I would recommend waiting until the bars are completely cooled before cutting. I cut mine when they were still warm so I didn't get clean edges but they do cut cleanly if you wait.

You always make the most interesting things. Apples are always on clearance at the local grocery store so I'm going to try this.

PS: I made these yesterday, they were truly delicious. Added a bit (1T.) of flour to the apple mixture and a good hit of ground cinnamon, along with a handful of raisins. I think it added to the flavor too. Thanks for sharing. G
