Caramel Apple Pie Bars

This is my second autumn making these delicious handheld apple pie bars, and it is definitely becoming an ongoing tradition. My friend Anya came to me last year with an entire crate of sweet, locally grown apples. She didn't know what to do with that many apples, so she thought I would be able to bake with them... and bake I did.

I ended up making this caramel apple pie bar recipe last year and not taking a picture of them because I didn't realize just how tasty they were, and gave most of them to Anya and her family as a thank you.

This year Anya called with another batch of apples in order to bribe me to make these delicious apple pie bars again. It definitely worked.

You can also easily make these bars vegan by simply substituting all of the butter with coconut oil.
