Applesauce Spice Bars

Look! I'm here. I didn't fall off the face of the earth. Or in a hole. And I have been baking my TWD assignments. (I just haven't been posting about them the past two weeks.) But I made the Banana Bundt Cake.

And the Brownie Buttons.

But summer has just gotten busy. And now it is over. The kids went back to school today and the Applesauce Spice Bars made a perfect after school snack (and a mid-morning snack for me while they were gone.)

This recipe was chosen by Karen and the recipe is on her blog, Something Sweet by Karen. Or you can find it on pages 117 & 118 of Baking, From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan.

I loved this simple recipe. I substituted walnuts for the pecans and since I didn't have heavy cream, I doubled the glaze recipe and used half sour cream and half half and half. That was weird to write. But this cake was great, and hopefully I will be blogging more frequently (but maybe changing the name from Secret Server to Secret Substitute.)

At least your abbreviation would stay the same.
I'm glad to see you blog and glad you enjoyed the bars. I thought they were good, too.

Oh wow a 3 in 1 tee hee!

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

I think your bars look great!

Did you double the glaze because there wasn't enough of it? Because that was my problem . . . not enough glaze!
