These apple cider custard bars would be the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving dessert spread. This recipe has all the wonderful flavors of fall and it's in bar form so you don't have to worry about having another pie server.
Apple Cider Custard Bars
From Crepes of Wrath
For the crust:
2 cups flour
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp granulated sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter, cubed
For the custard:
1 cup cider
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup flour
3/4 tsp salt
powdered sugar, for dusting
1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 13x9 in dish liberally with butter.
2. Combine flour, sugar, salt, and butter in a bowl. Use your fingers, or a pastry cutter, to mix the dough until a crumbly coarse mixture forms. Press into prepared pan and bake for 15 minutes.
3. Whisk cider, eggs, brown sugar, granulated sugar, flour, and salt in a bowl. Pour over baked crust. Bake an additional 20-25 minutes, until the top is set.
3. Allow bars to cool for 4-6 hours before dusting with sugar and slicing into square.
Note: I halved this recipe and made my batch in an 8x8 inch pan and it worked wonderfully.
I cannot wait to make these again for Thanksgiving!
So much easier to make than a pie AND easier to eat too!
