My family loves this easy apple recipe. Apple Walnut Bars are the best when you have apples available, fresh from the orchard in the fall, but they are delicious any time of the year. I like them while still a little warm…with a little vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce on top.
Ingredients for Apple Walnut Bars:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup pure cane sugar
1 cup unbleached, all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 medium tart apple, peeled and chopped
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
(Of course, I used hickory nuts, because the grow in abundance on our property.)
Instructions for Apple Walnut Bars:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Gradually add dry ingredients to creamed mixture, beating just until combined. Fold in apple and walnuts.
Pour into a greased 8-inch square baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack and enjoy.
