  • Heat oven to 400ºF.
  • 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 15-1/2x10-1/2-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 remaining flour, granulated sugar and cinnamon; 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. Make several slits in top crust to vent.
  • Bake 35 to 40 min. or until golden brown.
  • Cool dessert 15 min. Meanwhile, mix icing sugar and water. Drizzle glaze over dessert. Cool 30 min. before cutting into bars.

Size Wise

Dessert can be part of a balanced diet but remember to keep tabs on portions.

How to Make for 8 Servings

Prepare recipe as directed, cutting all ingredients in half, assembling dessert in 9-inch square pan and reducing the baking time to 30 to 35 min. or until golden brown. Makes 8 servings.


The dough is rolled between the sheets of waxed paper to not only help prevent the dough from sticking to the work surface, but also to make it easier to transfer the rolled-out dough to the baking pan.

How to Roll Pastry Dough

For best results, balls of dough should be rolled out to a uniform thickness. Use rolling pin to roll out the dough, starting in the centre of the dough each time you roll it out.

Use Your Food Processor

Place flour, cream cheese and butter (cut into 1/2-inch cubes) into bowl of food processor. Use pulsing action to process mixture until it starts to form ball. Divide dough in half, then shape each half into ball. Continue as directed.
