Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If you’re short on time, use about 2/3 of a roll of refrigerated peanut butter cookie dough as the base and top with the cooked apples, the remaining cookie dough and the s’more toppings.
  • tip 2
    Line pan with cooking parchment paper, extending the paper over two sides of the pan, and you can easily lift the bars out.
