Sour Cream Apple Cinnamon Crumb Bars


Fall is the season for apples, visiting farms and cider mills, making all kinds of apple goodies like Apple Butterscotch BrowniesCaramel ApplesApple Sandwiches, and more.

So when I was asked to create a recipe, featuring DairyPure Sour Cream my first thought was to include apples! These sour cream bars turned out perfectly, I’m sure you will love them too!

DairyPure Sour Cream is made with fresh cream and milk from their own dairy, with no artificial growth hormones, and is backed by a 5-Point Purity Promise, so you know it will always have the freshest taste. DairyPure Sour Cream comes in two varieties, All Natural Sour Cream and Light Sour Cream. The Light Sour Cream contains 50% less fat and 41% fewer calories. Finally, I love the rectangular DairyPure Sour Cream fridge-friendly packaging.  It makes it super easy to store and find in the fridge.
