Apple Pie Crumb Bars are the perfect hybrid dessert of Apple Pie and Apple Crisp in one delicious easy to make bar recipe!

 
Apple Pie Crumb Bars are the perfect combination of apple pie and crisp making this the perfect Thanksgiving recipe for dessert from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

I made Apple Pie Crumb Bars, because I couldn't decide if I wanted an Apple Pie or Crisp. I love the crumbly top and bottom crust with the tart, sweet, cinnamony apple filling.

Apple Pie Crumb Bars are an easy to make hybrid of the two and perfect for a crowd! They have plenty of crumb for all my crumb lovers out there with plenty of apple filling! 

 Lorna and I made 2 pans of these Apple Pie Crumb Bars so we had a pan to share and a pan for home because they never last long in our house.

I also highly suggest a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream because there's nothing better in life then appley, cinnamony, crumbly goodness with a good old scoop of vanilla.

I just happened to accidentally leave the vanilla ice cream out the night before so we had to enjoy our Apple Pie Crumb Bars at home without it but they were still amazing.

You really can't go wrong with these.
