Jessie Sheehan's Better-Than-Apple-Pie Bars

Makes 16 bars

Apple pie is great and all, but apple pie bars are, well, better. I like Honey Crisp and Pink Ladies in these bars, but I won’t lie: Granny Smiths are my go-to. The crumb topping and crust can be made old-school style with your hands (which are your best tools in the kitchen, FYI) but if you use your food processor you will def save time. But you do you: if lugging out a machine and then having to clean it and put it away again gives you agita (which, honestly, I am feeling just writing this . . .) then stick to those hands: they will never steer you wrong. The crumb topping and crust soften a bit on day two and that is hardly a bad thing.
