7 cups Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and diced
1 cup apple butter
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 frozen pie crusts, defrosted
1 egg white
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9-by-13-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray. Place diced apples in large mixing bowl. Add apple butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla and brown sugar. Mix until apples are evenly coated.
Place one pie crust in bottom of greased pan. Slowly stretch out crust to cover pan’s bottom. Cut edges off, if necessary. Spread apple filling evenly over crust. With rolling pin, roll second crust to same size as pan. Place second crust on top of apple pie filling and tuck down edges to cover.
In a small bowl, whisk egg white until foamy and brush over crust. In another bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle evenly over crust. Bake 50-60 minutes until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven and cool slightly before icing and cutting.
In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar, milk and remaining vanilla, and whisk until smooth. Drizzle over cooled bars and serve.
