These easy Glazed Apple Pie Bars have a delicious butter crust with canned apple pie filling with a tasty simple glaze on top.


1 cup butter, softened at room temperature

2 cups granulated sugar

1 teaspoon salt

4 large eggs, room temperature

1 and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 cups all-purpose flour

2 cans (540ml each) apple pie filling


1 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

23 tablespoons milk


  1. Grease a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, or bowl from stand mixer, cream together softened butter, granulated sugar and salt for 5 to 7 minutes until light and fluffy. The mixture should be light and lemon-colored.
  3. Next, add in the eggs, one a time beating well after each addition.
  4. Beat in vanilla extract.
  5. Gradually add in flour, one cup at a time, stirring just until combined.
  6. Remove 3 cups of the dough and spread evenly into prepared baking pan. (My pan was a bit larger and I didn’t go all the way to the edges)
  7. Top with both cans of apple pie filling, leaving about 1 and ½-inches around the edges.
  8. Drop the remaining dough by teaspoonfuls over the apple pie filling. A small cookie scoop works great!
  9.  Bake in 350°F oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely in pan on wire cooling rack.
  10. For Glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, vanilla extract and enough milk to reach desired consistency. Drizzle over top of cooled bars.
