Glazed Apple Butter Shortbread Bars


  • For the Cookies:
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup Musselman’s Apple Butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • For the Frosting:
  • 1/4 cup Musselman’s Apple Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 ounces white baking chocolate, melted


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with nonstick baking spray.
  2. Beat the butter and sugar until creamy. Add the apple butter and vanilla and beat again.
  3. Stir together the salt, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Slowly add to the butter mixture until dough forms.
  4. Place the dough on the prepared pan. Press the dough out evenly into a 9×11 rectangle. Bake for 11-12 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and use a pizza cutter to cut the warm cookie into 20 even rectangles. Let cool for a few minutes on the pan, then remove them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Whisk together the apple butter, butter, and powdered sugar. Use a spatula to spread the frosting evenly on the tops of the cooled cookies.
  7. Place the melted white chocolate in a plastic bag and cut one tip off. Drizzle over the tops of the frosting. Let sit until the frosting hardens. Store in a tightly sealed container. Makes 20 bars.


I mixed up the recipe and combined chocolate with the apple butter, still tasty!

This is a great treat and wonderfully sweet, even without chocolate chocolate.
