Wisconsin Bars

This recipe comes from an Amish cookbook. I love making recipes from my 8 or so Amish cookbooks. We like the apples and cheese together. We made these for a Packer party this week.

Wisconsin Bars

Mrs. Wayne Yoder—Favorite Recipes of the Amish of Wisconsin

½ c sugar
1 c butter
2 egg yolks
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
2 c flour
4 cooking apples (medium)
½ lb. cheddar cheese (2 cups)
¼ c flour
1 tsp cinnamon
2 egg whites
1 ½ c powdered sugar
½ c cream cheese
Combine sugar, butter, egg yolks, baking powder, salt and 2 cups flour. Blend until crumbly (I used a pastry blender). Put ½ of mixture into a 13 x 9 inch cake pan and press down. Reserve the remainder.

Grate together the apples and cheddar cheese. Add ¼ cup flour, cinnamon and about ½ c sugar (to taste). Mix well. Spread this mixture as 2nd layer in caked pan. Spread the remaining crumbly mixture to form a 3rd layer.

Whip egg whites; add powdered sugar and cream cheese. Spoon this on top and bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes until golden brown. Makes 3 dozen bars.
