TWD: Applesauce Spice Bars


This week Karen of Something Sweet by Karen chose the Applesauce Spice Bars for Tuesdays with Dorie. I opened up the cookbook, browsed over the recipe, and decided I had to make it. The picture looked great, and even better still - easy!

I was excited about something different this week. These bars got me in the mood for fall to arrive. I don't know about everyone else living in the south, but I've been hating all the heat we've had. The big pregnant belly sure doesn't help that situation. I've wanted to hide indoors until the weather cools off. So this dessert really made me feel like fall actually is just around the corner, thank goodness!


These bars turned out to be really delicious. They were like an apple cake with a sweet glaze, and so moist and flavorful. And extremely easy to make! I left out the raisins per my husband's request, and also left out the optional alcohol. The rest of the recipe I followed precisely. Go on over to Karen's blog for the recipe, you won't be sorry!

As much as I hate the heat sometimes, I don't want fall to come!! I love summer! Your bars look yummy. I left the raisins out too.

How pretty yours look. I am starting to really get tired of the heat too. Ah, woman, I feel your pain. Being preggers in the summer is NOT fun! Hang in there.

The heat has been pretty intense lately! (I'm in SC). These look great- I love the glaze!

Your bars look real pretty! Im from Atlanta, and yeah, I can't wait for fall to be here! I remember being pregnant in the summer, and it's no fun at all!

Great looking bars. Nice and perfectly sliced. Mine didn't seem to cut as nicely, because they were so moist. I'm with you on the midwest (south, wherever) heat and humidity! Today is perfectly humid (read-blah!!!). Feeling for you being pregnant! Hang in there.

They look great! I skipped these, but maybe when fall rolls around I'll give them a try (but with the raisins!).

I understand about the heat. Live in Louisiana and it has been miserable. I feel your pain!!

But your bars look fantastic!!

They look great! I skipped the raisins, too. Hang in there with your pregnancy. I know it stinks to do in the heat. It's sure to be over soon! Take care.

They look really yummy, definitely the recipe to get you ready for fall! Hopefully it'll cool down for you soon, being pregnant in hot weather sounds really uncomfortable.

I did the same thing as you - no raisins or alcohol! Your bars look really great and I agree, so delicious!
