I have so many recipes book marked from Donna's Blog, & occasionally I actually make one. The other day she shared one that I was just dying to make- Apple Streusel Cheesecake Bars.
I made a special trip to the grocery store to get the oatmeal cookie mix and apple pie filling that I needed to make this.
Now it's been so hot here that I have been doing my baking in the morning or late in the evening, so this morning I got everything out and begin making these.
Of course there were a small swarm of children with the usual questions- whatcha doin? whatcha makin? When are you going to feed us? Can I eat candy for breakfast? hahahaha!
So while I was mixing and preparing this I also set them all up with their breakfast, which is never a silent affair. One kiddo wanted to know where I thought the dog had buried his bone, another wanted to know which earring I thought she should wear, yadda, yadda, yadda. So while I was mixing and talking- cause I do TRY to multi-task, I finished making the bars and slid the pan into the oven.
Hubby walks in and asks Whatcha makin? I turned to look at him- Apple Streusel Cheesecake ba.......... I trail off as something on the counter catches my eye. There on the counter is my can-full can- of apple pie filling that was suppose to be in the middle of my bars! That were in the oven baking!!! We had a good laugh and I decided to put the filling on top after the bars had chilled.
Sorry Donna, I had good intentions, apparently I just lack focus. These were really good, but now I will have to wonder how much better they would have been if I had actually payed attention and made them right??? LOL.
