Apple bliss bars

I made this slice yesterday and it was so good.
i have had it in my recipe folder for a while now and cannot remember where it originally came from but wanted to share it.

Apple Bliss Bar.
11/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup margarine
21/2 cups chopped apples
1/2 cup sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 eggs
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup nuts(optional)

Mix together flour,sugar and marg until crumbly then press into an ungreased 9X13 inch pan

Sprinkle chopped apples over crust then sugar mix over apples
Bake in moderate oven for 30mins.
mix together all topping ingredients
Remove from oven and pour topping over apples.
Return to oven for 20 Min's more

What i did different.
I used a large tin of pie apples so reduced the sugar in the base and also reduced the amount sprinkled only by a few tablespoons but i think it could be halved or even omitted.
i also changed the baking times due to the apples already being cooked.
i baked the base on it's own for 5-10 Min's then added the apples and sugar  and topping,
then baked it for a further  20mins  not 30.
I don't think the extra sugar in needed on tinned apples.

I didn't add nuts as i want the kids to be able to take it for lunch but i will be making it will nuts as i think the crunch would be nice
I also think adding almond meal to the base would be nice and plan on doing that too lol
adding sultanas to the apples or even the nuts at that stage would also be nice.

i love when a recipe is versatile to suit what you have in your pantry and this seems like it would be just that
