Luscious Fruit-Filled Bars & Squares
From sour cream-raisin bars to berry slab pie, these fruit-filled favorites are quick to make and full of fresh, sweet flavor.
Cherry Crumble Pie Bars
For all the goodness of homemade cherry pie in a cookie, try this tart bar. A hint of almond, both in the filling and the crust, lends extra rich flavor.
Frosted Apple Slab Pie
Sugary ginger icing balances the sweet-tart rhubarb in this classic bar cookie recipe.
Apple Cheese Slab Pie
A lightly spiced layer of apples turns two layers of buttery pastry into a slice of pie you can eat without a fork. Decorate these sweet bars with powdered sugar icing and a sprinkle of additional nutmeg.
Oatmeal Jam Bars
Like a delicious stuffed Danish, this dessert includes sweet layers of cream cheese and apples between buttery puff pastry crusts.
Pear-Cinnamon Streusel Squares
Adding cream cheese to the batter makes these sweet-tart bars melt in your mouth.
Berry Slab Pie
Substitute apples for the pears, if you like; this moist bar's cinnamon-flavor sweetness blends well with either fruit. Drizzle the bars with powdered sugar icing after they cool for a beautiful presentation.
Cherry Crumb Bars
Purchased puff pastry makes it a snap to prepare this eat-with-your-hands berry-filled treat. Sprinkle the top with coarse sugar for a bit of sparkle.
Tart cherries balanced with a sweet powdered sugar icing make these start-with-a mix bar cookies a fruit-filled favorite.
A delightfully tart cream cheese topper is the perfect accent to these sweet, doughy bars.
Crumb-Topped Apple Slab Pie
No one will guess these moist bars start with a biscuit mix. Just add dates, cranberries, and pecans, along with a spicy-sweet pinch of cardamom, to make the batter. Prep takes only 15 minutes!
Sour Cream and Raisin Bars
A buttery crumb topping gives delicious crunch to this mouthwatering treat, inspired by Dutch apple pie.
Raisin pie fans will love these down-home bars featuring a buttery oatmeal crust and crumb topper. For other fruit flavors, substitute dried apricots, cherries, or cranberries.
Cran Crackle Bars
Sweeten the tart cranberry filling with a splash of pear nectar to add luscious flavor to these hearty, nutmeg-spiced oat bars.
Packed with cranberries, nuts, and white or chocolate baking pieces, these colorful bars make a sweet treat any time of year. Crushed pretzels add extra crunch to the crispy crust.
