Strawberry Pie Sour Cream Crumb Bars

27 May

Last week husband had two friends help him move a huge piece of furniture from the dining room to the basement. I happened to have baked these super delicious bars. They were still warm in the baking dish, but the guys ate it up. After they had their share more than half was gone! Definitely making this again. Might try cherry pie filling next time!

Strawberry Pie Sour Cream Crumb Bars
adapted from therecipecritic

Crust:
1/2 c butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
1/2 c light brown sugar
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Filling:
1 c strawberry pie filling (or any kind you would like)
1/2 c sour cream
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 Tbsp all purpose flour
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 375 and prepare an 8×8 square pan by lining with parchment paper and spraying with cooking spray.
2. Make the crust by whisking together in a medium bowl the flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add the melted butter. The dough will be crumbly but make sure all of the butter is incorporated.
3. Reserve 3/4 cup of the crust and press the remaining into the bottom of your 8×8 prepared baking pan.
4. For the sour cream filling, mix together in a large bowl the sour cream, sugar, 1 Tbsp flour, egg, and vanilla. Pour over the crust in your 8×8 pan.
5. Spoon your pie filling over the sour cream and gently swirl with the sour cream filling with a spoon.
6. Sprinkle your reserved 3/4 cup crust over the top and bake for 25-28 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely and serve into squares. Store in the refrigerator up to 3 days. 🙂
