Apple Crumble Bars

One of the reasons I love Apple Crumble Bars is because they are loaded to the gills with crumbs.  Most of the cakes you’ll find on my blog have a crumb topping, yes… buttery slightly crispy little crumbs are my weakness.  Apple Crumble Bars are crumbs from top to bottom.  The bottom layer is crumbs, the apples are coated with crumbs and the topping is crumbs.  I was in pig heaven when these came out of the oven!  Let’s get started making these bad boys.

Cut the room temperature butter into the flour mixture until you have coarse crumbs. I started cutting the butter into the flour with a pastry blender and finished cutting it in with my fingers. Rubbing the mixture between my fingers and thumbs until I had coarse crumbs.

While the bottom layer is baking, peel, core and cube the apples, sprinkle with 2 teaspoons lemon juice. Place in the bowl with the reserved 1 cup of crumbs, toss to coat.
