If you love apples, almonds and cream cheese, please head over to Mary’s or Helen’s blog right now and make these oh so delicious almond apple bars. They are one of the most addictive little pleasures you can find. The wonderful crumble on top, the creamy delicate center and the flavor of the apple pieces all combine to give you quite an ecstatic experience.
I made them last weekend and am making them again today because they’re all gone and I wanted to bring some to the office. However, I am not sure if this batch will make it out the door either.
I like to heat up mine a little, maybe 4 minutes in a preheated 350°F toaster oven and having a scoop of vanilla ice cream with it. The hubby likes it by itself or even straight from the refrigerator.
Note: My apple bar looked a bit top heavy because I misread the recipe and instead of reserving 2/3 cup of the crust for the crumble, I reserved almost 2/3 of the entire mixture instead. I did notice that the bottom crust was too thin so I patched it up using what I could from the “2/3” of the mixture.
