Apple Butter Crumb Bars

If any of you have visited Riley’s Apple Farm, you’ll know how outstanding their apple butter is.  I left with a couple of jars in hand after my last visit, and wanting to put it to good use, I whipped up these crumb bars!

They are very adaptable, you only need 6 ingredients, and they can easily be made vegan if you swap out the butter for shortening!

Ingredients:

2 & 1/4 cups flour

3/4 cup white sugar

a sprinkle of sea salt

2 sticks melted butter (or equal quantity shortening for vegan recipe)

1 & 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

8 oz apple butter

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Line a 9×13 inch pan with parchment paper

Stir flour, sugar, & sea salt together in a large bowl, then stir in melted butter and vanilla.  Dough will be moist but slightly crumbly

Set aside some of the dough for the crumble topping (about 2/3 cup)

Press the rest of the dough onto the bottom of the pan for the crust layer

Bake for around 25 minutes

Remove from the oven, & spread the apple butter evenly across.  Then crumble the dough you set aside onto the top

Return to the oven for another 15 minutes

Enjoy!
