Success! This recipe has taken me over 6 months to perfect. I have finally mastered the texture that I was hoping to create and something the kiddies devour. A lot of work have gone in to these.
I really wanted a bar that was similar to store bought ones. A lot of the recipes I had tried all were a crunchy or powdery biscuit outer and very fiddly to make due to the temperamental pastry. This is a nice soft biscuit, almost muffin like outer with a fruity filling exactly like store bought bars. There will be honey taste to these due to the pastry.
You can vary the filling to use any fruit you like. Just keep in mind if your fruits are more watery than apples, you will need to cook the filling longer until a paste like consistency is achieved.
With the pastry off cuts I cut out shapes and bake. They make great biscuits!
This makes 8 adult size bars or 12 kiddie size bars (shown in picture) or 16-18 baby size bars.
Lets talk money!
The cost of 8 baby bars at the store is $3.89
The cost for 16 of my baby size bars is less than = $5.00
