Happy 4th of July! I hope everyone has a fun-filled day with lots of delicious food planned! We are just returning from a week in Vegas and are planning to recuperate from the heat comfortably and quietly at home with some burgers and these bars.
To me, you cannot celebrate the 4th without an All American Apple Pie. But when you are serving a crowd, slicing and serving a pie can be quite cumbersome. These Apple Pie Bars are perfect for cutting up in advance, allowing people to grab their own piece when they please.
They have everything you want in a slice of pie, in bar form. The flaky crust and thick apple center. Serve it with a large scoop of ice cream and you have the perfect summer dessert!
Every year the when the 4th of July hits, it is only a matter of days before my birthday comes. This year, I am hoping the days move very slowly as it they will be the last days of my roaring twenties 🙁 So please excuse while I indulge in an extra cocktail (or three) today (another reason we are staying home).
Have a happy and safe 4th of July!
