  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Unroll 1 dough sheet, and place in ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish, stretching to cover and firmly pressing dough to cover bottom.
  • 2
    In small microwavable bowl, mix apples and 1/2 teaspoon of the apple pie spice. Microwave uncovered on High 2 to 3 minutes, stirring after each minute, until apples are softened.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, mix cream cheese, 1 cup of the sugar and the vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Stir in apple mixture, and spread on top of dough in baking dish.
  • 4
    Unroll remaining dough sheet, and carefully place on top of cream cheese layer, slightly stretching to cover. Carefully pour melted butter onto dough, and brush to spread evenly over top. In small dish, mix remaining 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice. Sprinkle evenly over top of dough.
  • 5
    Bake 28 to 33 minutes or until dough is deep golden brown and baked through. Cool on cooling rack 1 hour; refrigerate 2 hours, and cut into 5 rows by 3 rows. Serve topped with whipped topping, and sprinkle with additional apple pie spice, if desired.

Expert Tips

  • If you don’t have apple pie spice, cinnamon tastes just as great in this recipe!
  • Granny Smith or Braeburn apples are other varieties that may be substituted for the Honeycrisp.
  • Store leftover bars loosely covered in refrigerator.
