Ingredients

---Apples---
6 Granny Smith or Golden Delicious apples
¼ cup brown sugar, packed
1 tbsp honey
Fresh lemon juice

---Crust---
½ lb unsalted butter
½ cup brown sugar
1 egg
2¼ cups flour
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt

---Streusel Topping---
1 cup flour
¼ cup granulated sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp salt
¼ lb unsalted butter
½ cup toasted pecans, medium chopped


Apples


Peel, core and slice apples ¼-inch thick. Sauté the apples in the brown sugar, honey and lemon juice. Cook the apples until all of the liquid in the pan has evaporated. Let mixture cool.


Crust


Preheat oven to 325° F. Cream the butter and the sugar. Add the egg and blend. Add the remaining dry ingredients. Mix for 1 minute and scrape down bowl. Mix for 1 minute more. Press dough into sheet pan coated with cooking spray. Bake in a 325° F oven for 15 minutes until lightly spongy.


Streusel Topping


Combine together the flour, granulated and brown sugars, cinnamon and salt. Mix briefly on slow speed. Add the butter and mix on medium speed until the mixture is crumbly and barely holds together when squeezed gently. Stir in the pecans with a large rubber spatula. Set aside.


Baking the Bar


When the crust is done, immediately spread the cooked apples evenly over the hot crust. Sprinkle the streusel topping over the apples gently pressing to adhere. Reduce the oven temperature to 300° F and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the topping is lightly browned and crisp.
