Strawberry Pie Sour Cream Crumb Bars

These bars turned out to be delicious, the tartness of the sour cream combined with the sweet/tart pie filing along with the crunch in the topping was delicious.  You can use any pie filling that you like in these bars.  I used home-made filling using the recipe here.  I did find the filling to be a little too soft so the bars ended up being soft as well.  Next time I’ll try adding a little bit more flour to the recipe or a little bit more corn starch to the filling to make it thicker. 

Strawberry Pie Sour Cream Crumb Bars


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

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.
