Apple Cinnamon Bars

I have to share this great recipe from my Betty Crocker Cookbook I received from

my sister as a shower gift many years ago. They taste the best with homemade apple butter!

  •  On low speed, beat in flour, baking soda and salt until well blended. Stir in apple and cinnamon chips. Spread batter in pan.
