Easy Apple Recipes – Apple Pie Jam Bars

recipe apple pie jam bars

A few days ago my friend Mama JJ posted a recipe for cranberry crumble bars that made my eyes grow big. I decided right then and there to make a batch. But when I went to freezer, I realized I had used all our frozen cranberries over the holidays. So I improvised.

Armed with her recipe for a rich and buttery crust, I went to the pantry and grabbed a pint of apple pie jam.

These apple pie jam bars were so incredibly delicious, I know I’ll be making them again real soon. Perfect to enjoy with a cup of tea, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream if you’ve got it.

Apple Pie Jam Bars RecipeIngredients

3 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
2 sticks butter, sliced thin
1 egg, beaten
1 pint apple pie jam


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Place all the ingredients except the apple pie jam in a food processor or mixer and combine until nice and crumbly. Divide the crust mixture in half. Put half of the crumb mixture into a parchment paper lined 9×13 pan and spread the mixture out evenly over the bottom of the pan. Using your fingers, make a firm crust.

Spread apple pie jam over the bottom crust and use the remaining crumbs to cover the jam. Bake for 30 – 35 minutes or until the jam is bubbling and the topping is lightly browned.

Cool, slice, and serve.

    I made apple crisp tonight from our storage apples. They are holding up really well . I copied off lots of pages of a 40-some year old church cookbook that had a Scandinavian heritage. Church cookbooks are so fun to read. Do you collect cookbooks? The apple crisp was good…had a really thick crunchy topping.

    I like to put of making some of my jams and jellies until this time of year. Less busy, I don’t mind working over a hot stove in 0 degree weather. The juices are all in the freezer ready for jelly. The citrus is just starting to show up in abundance at the grocer so I can do the marmalades. I should do this apple jam and the carrot cake jam looks good also.

    These are in my oven as we speak for the third time in 6 weeks. I tend to cook them a bit longer than the directions say, but they are a hit at home and also at our school bake sale!

    Just made these for Thanksgiving – they were an all-around huge hit. I’d made the jam a few weeks before, and it took me 3 of the half-pint jars, rather than 2. Came together really easy on the day-of and made my house smell like apple pie. Will def make again!
