Apple Butter Bars

I received several new cookbooks for Christmas this year and two of them are Amish Friends cookbooks by Wanda Brunstetter.  This recipe comes from Volume 2.

The recipe is very similar to the apricot bars that I blogged about a few weeks ago.  They are a great treat for dessert or breakfast.

Apple Butter Bars


1.5 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

2.5 cups oats

1.5 cups sugar

1 cup (2 sticks) margarine {I used butter}

1.5 cups apple butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Sift together the flour, soda, and salt in a large bowl.  Add the oats and sugar.  Stir in the butter and mix well.  Press half of the mixture into the bottom of a greased 9×13-inch pan.  Top with apple butter.  Sprinkle with remaining crumbs.

Bake 45-55 minutes or until lightly brown.

    I just checked the date on my apple butter…expires this month. HA! What better way to use it up, thanks for the idea. I think I used it ages ago on a pork loin.
