    Posted by jriessel - October 18, 2004 01:01 PM


    2 c. flour (for crust)
    1/2 c. powdered sugar (for crust)
    1 c. butter or margarine (for crust)
    1 can sweetened condensed milk
    1 tsp vanilla
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    1 whole egg
    1 c. chopped apples
    1 c. chopped pecans
    1 c. English toffee baking bits (not chocolate-coated)
    1 c. powdered sugar (for glaze)
    2 tbsp to 3 T. milk (for glaze)

    All You Do

    In bowl, combine flour and 1/2 c. powdered sugar. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press into bottom of ungreased 9-by-13-inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

    Meanwhile, in large bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, cinnamon and egg. Blend well. Stir in apples, pecans and toffee baking bits. Mix well. Pour over baked crust. Return pan to oven and bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before topping with glaze.

    While bars are baking, combine 1 c. powdered sugar and 2 to 3 T. milk. Mix until smooth. Drizzle over warm bars.

    Makes 24 bars.

    It's in the oven now. I did use toffee piece not covered in chocolate, but with Hershey's choc. bits added in the bag mix. Couldn't find just toffee bits alone.

    I also used only 1/2 cup pecans (1 cup seemed like a lot to me).

    I'll also reduce the confectioners sugar from 1 cup to 1/2 or 3/4 cup and add more milk to it so it isn't tooooo sweet for the glaze.

    Also used Low fat sweetened condensed milk.

    I'll add to this later with a thumbs up or down.

      These are good! Kids & hubby liked them. Pretty sweet though, need a tall glass of milk.

      The only thing I am uncertain about is the glaze topping. I messed with the recipe and got it too runny so I didn't get the full effect of it. I ended up blotting it off of the top and only residual glaze was left.

      Rate 4/5. I, personally, could take or leave this one, but definately NOT bad, just really sweet.

      It is easy enough that if you made it and didn't like it , it is not a huge loss of time.
