Oatmeal and Apple Butter Bars or Crisp

An easy dessert that can be baked as either bar cookies or a crisp.

Featured on CITR

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: 6-8

Prep Time: 5 minutes   Cook Time: 30-45 minutes  


1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup butter or margarine
1 1/4 cups oatmeal*
1 cup apple butter


*Either quick oats or old-fashioned work in this recipe.

In a medium-size bowl, mix flour and brown sugar. Cut in the butter or margarine so that the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in oats. Press half the mixture into a greased 8-inch pan (for bars) or 1 1/2 quart casserole dish (for a crisp). Spread apple butter over the top, all the way to the edges. Sprinkle the remaining oats mixture over the top.

Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 30-40 minutes for bars or about 50 minutes for a crisp–until lightly browned. (Watch it carefully.)

    I was gifted with several jars of various fruit butters for my birthday. This on top of the dozens of half-pints of jam I made this summer. Made this recipe today for hubby’s office. I’m positive there won’t be a bar left by 9am! Easy peasy recipe and a good way to use up my fifty kabillion jars of fruit butter!

    I used a little less jam because that is what I had on hand. These are delicious and a great pantry to to bar cookies. My son comes home from college tomorrow so these will be gone in a jiffy.
