What are you doing with all those apples you picked out on the farm? How about a batch of sweet, warm, gooey and crumbly apple streusel bars? They worked out well for us!

We spotted this recipe at another blog, Our Best Bites, and the sight of warm apple streusel bars was irresistible. We whipped them up very quickly; these come together fast! They look elaborate, but they're quite easy. You don't have to cook the apples first, which helps. You make just one batch of dough, pat 2/3 of it into a pan, then spread sliced apples over it. The rest of the crust mixture gets crumbled on top as a streusel. It's easy, quick, and no-fuss. The most timeconsuming part is peeling and slicing the apples.

One caveat: we found these really sweet! We cut down on the glaze, which does help, but you might want to consider the amount of glaze you use, and also increase the spices a bit to counter the sweetness.

Overall, though, these were an easy treat that really showcased the tart sweetness of autumn apples. We loved them.
