The best apple bars ever...

...and I'm not kidding. You must try these. You can thank me later.

Glazed Apple Bars

4 cups flour
2 1/3 cups sugar, divided
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups butter, room temperature (yes, that's 3 sticks of butter)
5 Granny Smith apples, peeled & sliced
1 tsp. cinnamon

Combine flour, 2 cups of sugar, and salt.
Cut in butter until crumbly.
Take half of this mixture and pat it gently into the bottom of a jelly roll pan.
Top mixture with peeled & sliced apples in rows.
Combine remaining cinnamon & sugar and sprinkle over apples.
Crumble remaining flour mixture over the top of the apples.
Back at 350 for 50-60 minutes.
Cool before drizzling the glaze over the top.
Cut into squares to serve.

1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbsp. water

Stir until combined, pour over apple bars.
