  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • 1 cup strawberry pie filling
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  •  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Line an 8X8 baking pan with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Add flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt to a medium and whisk until ingredients are evenly combined.  Add butter and combine until mixture is the size of peas and is crumbly.  Reserve 3/4 cup of crumb mixture and set aside to use for the topping.  Press the remaining crumb mixture into prepared baking pan. Set aside and prepare to fill.
  •  Add the sour cream, sugar, 1 tablespoon of flour, egg, and vanilla in a large bowl and mix until all the ingredients are evenly combined.  Spread filling over prepared crust.  Drop spoonfuls of strawberry pie filling evenly over sour cream filling.  Gently swirl pie filling with a sour cream mixture with a spoon.  Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture evenly over top.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 25-28 minutes or until the top of bars begin to brown and center of bars is "set".  Cool completely and serve.  Store any leftovers in the fridge.
