Apple Pie Bars

Fall lovers start your engines! It is time to start rolling out all of my favorite desserts! i wanted to start out with something simple, but something that still screamed fall. If anyone knows me, they know that I am a huge fan of any dessert with apples in it. Instead of starting with the always classic apple pie, I figured i would spice it up a bit and make these apple pie bars instead! Not only does these bars taste delish, but they also have a glaze to go on top that is to die for!

The bar base is more of a sugar cookie so it adds an extra layer of sweetness especially when the apple filling is added. Then adding the glaze on top really takes it to a level that I don’t think anyone was prepared for! I would also suggest using a fork when eating these. I know I called them apple pie bars, but they are a little messy if you were to pick them up and eat them with your hands. Enjoy!


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cup flour
  • 20 oz. apple pie filling
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream butter and sugar in a mixer.
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until well combined.
  4. Add flour and salt, one cup at a time.
  5. Separate the dough in half.
  6. In a greased, 9X13 pan, add the first half of the dough to the bottom of the pan.
  7. In a separate bowl, combine the apple pie filling with the nutmeg and cinnamon.
  8. Add the apple pie filling to the top of the dough in the pan.
  9. Add the remaining dough to the top of the filling. I would suggest flattening the dough before placing it on top. It’s okay if the filling shows through the dough. It doesn’t have to cover it completely.
  10. In a separate bowl, mix the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla.
  11. Bake for 30-40 minutes.
  12. After the bars have cooled, evenly pour the glaze over the top of the bars.
  13. Let the bars cool for at least an hour before serving.
