Apple Butter Bars

Apple Butter Bars

The final count after our amazing apple butter marathon was 64 pints. Wow!

So now you’re asking what in the world am I going to do with all of it?

Eat it of course! I’ll use some in this apple butter bar recipe that my sister Teresa was kind enough to share with me.

She makes these to sell at the farmer’s market and believe me- they are good!

These delicious bars are fast and easy to make, and always remind me of apple crisp- but with lots of topping!

Apple Butter Bars

Mix 1 1/4 cup flour and 1 cup brown sugar.

Cut in 1 stick oleo.

Stir in 1 1/4 cups of oatmeal.

Press 1/2 the mixture firmly in a greased 8″ square pan.

Spread 3/4 c. (1/2 pint) apple butter to within 1/2″ of edges.

Sprinkle with remaining mixture and press firmly.

Bake 350 degrees 40 minutes.

These are a hot item at her farmer’s market booth and with the family. We’ve learned to get them while they are hot because there are rarely any left!

  1. Recipe correction!!!! After cutting in the oleo, stir in 1 1/4 c. oatmeal. Somehow that step was lost in translation and it’s an important one!!!
