Applesauce Spice Bars....

This week's choice of Applesauce Spice Bars was chosen by
Just the right dessert to get you in the mood for fall.
Each Tuesday with Dorie, I actually bake on that day. I look at the recipe the night before,
and if I do not have all the ingredients on hand I rush off to the store Tuesday morning to get them. This will sometimes make for a late posting. Because the item may have to cool before frosting and cutting.
This week's choice was super easy and fast. I mixed it all in the saucepan on top of the stove....so there was no KA mixer involved. The hard part was turning the oven on, boy did I ever cringe!
It is 97 degrees here today, and I really hated turning that oven on.
At least it was only for 25 minutes!

I chose to leave my skins on my Golden Delicious Apples. Because, when they are cut small you can not tell the difference. I also decided that I would put them on last, just pressing them in.
This way they would show up on top when baked and look great!

I hope all of you that tried the Applesauce Spice Bars were as pleased as my family. Big shout out to Laurie for creating the Tuesdays with Dorie group and being such a wonderful leader for all of us TWD people.

And, of course, thanks to Dorie Greenspan for writing the masterpiece that is Baking: From my home to yours. And check at Karen's site here for the easy recipe!http://somethingsweetbykaren.wordpress.com/

We give this 5 glasses of milk,
for utter caramel goodness!

We liked this one, too. The glaze will have to wait until the fall, though. I just couldn't get it done this time. Still tasty!

What a great idea to put the apple on top!

Love the apples on the top! I loved these bars but had to give half the batch to my neighbor or I would have eaten them ALL!
