Appletini Bars

Remember the Appletini? I decided it had to be made into a dessert, so I made it into this tasty little dessert bar.

Appletini Bars

Ingredients:

1 1/4 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces

Filling
1 large green apple, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 cups bottled sour apple drink mix
3 envelopes unflavored gelatin
1 cup vodka

Directions:

Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. In food processor, place flour, powdered sugar, salt and butter. Cover; process, using quick on-and-off motions, until dough is crumbly. Press in baking dish.

In medium bowl, toss apple slices with granulated sugar until coated. Arrange apple slices in single layer, not overlapping, on crust. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until edges of crust are lightly browned. Cool on cooling rack.

Meanwhile, pour 1 cup of the sour apple drink mix into large heatproof bowl; sprinkle gelatin over drink mix. Let stand 1 minute. Heat remaining 1 cup sour apple drink mix to boiling. Pour over gelatin mixture and stir until gelatin is completely dissolved, about 5 minutes. Add vodka; stir until well blended.

Pour mixture over apple layer. Refrigerate 2 to 3 hours or until firm. Cut into 8 rows by 3 rows.
