      Apple Pie Bars

      8-oz pkg cream cheese, softened
      1 cup butter, softened
      3-1/4 cups flour, divided
      10 Granny Smith apples, peeled, sliced
      1-1/4 cups granulated sugar
      1 tsp ground cinnamon
      3/4 cup powdered sugar
      1 tbs water

      Heat oven to 400º.

      Beat cream cheese and butter in large bowl with mixer until blended. Gradually add 3 cups flour, mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended. Shape into 2 balls. Place 1 ball on large lightly floured sheet of waxed paper.  Flatten slightly. Cover with second floured sheet of waxed paper. Roll out dough to 15-1/2×10-1/2-inch rectangle. Discard top sheet of waxed paper.

      Spray 15x10x1-inch pan with cooking spray. Invert over rolled-out dough. Flip dough and pan together. (Pan will be on bottom.) Remove second waxed paper sheet.  Gently press dough onto bottom and up side of pan. Toss apples with combined granulated sugar, cinnamon and remaining flour.  Spread onto bottom of crust.

      Repeat rolling out of remaining dough ball to make second rectangle. Remove top sheet of waxed paper.  Carefully flip dough over apples. Discard waxed paper. Tuck edges of dough down sides of pan to enclose apples. Cut several slits in top crust to vent steam.

      Bake 35 to 40 min or until golden brown. Cool 15 min.

      Mix powdered sugar and water.  Drizzle over dessert. Cool 30 min. before cutting into bars.  Makes 16
