Instructions

  1. 1
    Preheat the oven to 350°F, then line an 8-inch square baking pan with enough parchment paper to overhang the edges, and set aside.
  2. 2
    Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until combined, then beat in the vanilla. Stir in the flour and chopped TWIX® Minis. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan, and prick all over with a fork. Freeze for 10 minutes.
  3. 3
    Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or just until set and pale golden around the edges. Allow to cool completely, then spread the apple pie filling on top.
  4. 4
    For the streusel topping, stir together the pecans, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Rub in the butter with your fingertips until blended. Add the chopped TWIX® minis, and toss well.
  5. 5
    Sprinkle the streusel topping over the filling. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes or until golden brown and bubbling. Allow to cool completely.
