Let’s talk cherry pie for a minute, shall we? Because when it comes to desserts, cherry pie is always at the top of the list.
Not only is it a classic dessert that everyone loves, but there are so many fun ways to reinvent it. From Cherry Pie Cookie Cups to Cherry Pie Ice Cream, it’s one of those things that’s always delicious….no matter how you make it!
And these Cherry Apple Butter Bars are no exception. They combine two amazing flavors – cherry pie filling and apple butter – in one delicious recipe that’s sure to become a new favorite.
Of course, a big part of what makes these bars so delicious is that they start with Lucky Leaf Cherry Pie Filling…our favorite!
We love Lucky Leaf, not just because it’s a great tasting, high quality product, but because it has more fruit than other pie fillings and is made without high-fructose corn syrup.
Lucky Leaf products are convenient, easy to use, and a great way to simplify your baking.
Best of all, they’re incredibly versatile! We’ve used them to make everything from Cherry Cheesecake Lush to Baked Caramel Apple Cheesecake Dip to Blueberry Pie Bars and Cherry Cheesecake Gingerbread Trifle.
And let’s just say my kids were beyond excited to add these Cherry Apple Butter Bars to the mix.
WHAT IS APPLE BUTTER?
Apple Butter is a highly concentrated form of apple sauce made by cooking apples with cider or water over a long period of time. Eventually the sugar in the apples caramelizes, turning the apple butter a deep brown color. Apple Butter is flavored with cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg and is typically used as a condiment or spread.

- Cream together butter and sugars, then mix in eggs and vanilla.
- Add flour, baking powder, and salt. Then stir in oats and white chocolate chips.
- Spread 2/3 of batter onto a greased jelly roll pan; top with a combination of cherry pie filling and apple butter.
- Spoon remaining remaining batter over the pie filling.
- Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes.
TIPS FOR CHERRY APPLE BUTTER BARS
- Use room temperature butter. If the butter is too cold or warm, it won’t cream properly.
- Grease fingers before spreading the batter into the pan since the batter will be a bit sticky.
