This simple bar cookie goes well to parties, picnics, or even the lunch box. Made with Musselman’s Apple Butter.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8x8-inch baking pan. Line with heavy-duty foil, leaving an overhang on two sides to make it easy to remove the bars from the pan. Coat foil with cooking spray.
Mix flour, oatmeal, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Stir in butter with a fork until well mixed and clumps form.
Spread half the oatmeal mixture in foiled pan bottom, pressing to form a thin crust.
Spread apple butter over crust and then sprinkle remaining oatmeal mixture on top.
Bake until crisp and golden brown, 30 to 40 minutes. Cool to room temperature. Use foil “handles” to remove bars from pan. Cut into squares and serve.
