Applesauce Bars
June 10, 2008

Outstanding! I doubled the recipe per earlier reviews and it needed to be baked for 45 minutes. I don't use compound spices like pumpkin pie spice, so I incorporated 1-1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, 1 tsp ground nutmeg, 1/2 tsp ground allspice and 1/2 tsp ground cloves. I wanted to make them easy to pack in a lunch so when I removed the baked bars from the oven, I turned on the broiler and poured a mixture of 1/4 cup (half a stick) of melted butter, 1/2 cup packed of brown sugar and 2 Tb milk over the top and broiled until the topping was bubbly. The result was nice and spicy, plus wonderfully moist, with a slightly crunchy top. My son couldn't wait until they were cool and cut himself 3 huge bars, devouring them immediately. This one's a keeper.
