My family and I loved these bars! After reading other reviews, I peeled my apples and the filling turned out wonderful! I would of made them again the same week, but ... I ran out of sugar. ;)

I've made this recipe at least four times in the past two weeks, for church fellowship after worship and for Garden Club. I substituted ¼ cup of applesauce for part of the sugar in the sour cream layer (used ¼ c applesauce and ½ c sugar), and it was excellent. I peeled the apples but did not measure the quantity, and I'm sure there was at least 3 cups in every batch.

This dessert was nothing less than spectacular!!! I added 1/2 tsp of salt and 1 extra tsp of cinnamon to the dry ingredients. I used 1 Gala and 1 Jona Gold apple, and the sweet tart combo rocked. You must give this one a try. I promise you won't be disappointed.

These bars are homey yet company-worthy. I substituted mashed banana for 1/4 of the butter and it worked wonderfully. The off-putting texture criticized in an earlier review is, in my opinion, due to the apple peels in the filling. Simply peel the apples before shredding for a creamier result.

I made this recipe for my book club group and they absolutely loved it! The recipe was easy to make and the bars were very moist and flavorful.

This recipe was okay. We usually love apple goodies but found the texture of this dessert a little odd. The bake time was longer than the recipe suggested also. Although the flavor was okay it was definitely not a "wow, I'll make that again".
