Applesauce Spice Bars

PhotobucketFall is in the air? Not really,(still in the upper 90’s in Georgia), but Karen of SomethingSweet has chosen Dorie’s Applesauce Spice bars to jump start the season. I’ll be taking these as part of my tailgate menu when cheering my beloved University of Georgia Bulldawgs to victory this Fall. In fact, I think I’ll be making these many times. Perfect for teatime or for dessert with a scoop of cinnamon ice cream, these bars have a double shot of apple flavor-chopped fresh apple and unsweetened applesauce. Allspice and cinnamon lend their spiciness to the bars with golden raisins and chopped pecans giving texture and crunch. Just in time for a photo, the Winter Banana apple arrived in my CSA box. The Winter Banana apple, an heirloom apple, originated in Cass County, Indiana in 1876. Its dense texture makes it a perfect apple to slice and serve with cheese. Sweet and tart, the Winter Banana apple has a definite banana aroma with beautiful yellow skin and a reddish pink blush.

    Your bars look yummy and your glaze looks like it set just as it was supposed to (mine was just a runny mess!).
