We start making these delicious bars by using a pouch of cookie dough.  I took a picture of the pouch so you’d know what I was talking about.  You can use any brand you want to , this is what I picked up at the store.

First, you want to stir the cookie mix with 1 Tablespoon flour in a large mixing bowl.

Next, place 1/2 cup softened butter and 1 egg in the bowl.  Use a fork to work the butter into the cookie mix until it’s well incorporated and you have large clumps of dough.

After that, press the dough into a greased 13×9 inch pan evenly. Place the pan in a preheated 350 degree oven and bake about 15 – 20 minutes or until the dough is set and lightly browned around the edges. Lastly, remove the pan from the oven to a wire rack to cool.

While the dough cools…

Place 3/4 cup butter in a small saucepan. Cook the butter stirring constantly until it becomes a golden brown color. Take the butter off the heat as soon as it reaches a golden brown color, place it in a measuring cup to cool slightly.  Don’t cook the butter any farther than golden brown, if it’s cooked longer you run the risk of it burning.

Peel, core and thinly slice the apples, layer them onto the cooled cookie crust.  Place the remaining topping ingredients (3 eggs, 3/4 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, plus 1 Tablespoon flour, 1/2 Teaspoon salt, and 1 1/2 Teaspoons vanilla extract) in a large bowl.  Beat until the ingredients are well incorporated. Using an electric mixer, gradually add the browned butter to the topping, beat until the ingredients are smooth. Spread the mixture over the apples evenly in the pan. Bake 40 – 45 minutes or until deep golden brown.
