    cups flour

  • 1

    cup rolled oats

    cups coarsely chopped peeled tart apples

Directions

In a mixing bowl, cream butter, shortening and brown sugar until fluffy. Add the flour, oats, salt and baking soda; mix well. Stir in pecans if desired. Set aside 2 cups. Press remaining oat mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 13x9x2-inch baking pan. For filling, toss apples with flour; spoon over the crust.

Cool before cutting into bars.
