So I totally forgot to post before I left on vacation to NYC and Philly. Oopsie. So yes, I did make them on time.
I almost didn't make the Applesauce Spice Bars chosen by Karen at Something Sweet by Karen. At first glance they didn't seem so special. But after reading through the recipe a week or so later I was convinced by Dorie's "stories" (I call them) that I should make it. And I had some apples on hand.
The recipe is in the blondies and brownies section of Baking From My Home to Yours and it is seriously more like a thinner cake. Whatever you choose to call it--it was great! Though I would have double the glaze that goes on top, maybe even trippled it. It barely covered 1/2 of my finished product. See what I mean, here.
Make sure to check out Karen's blog and the Tuesdays with Dorie blogroll to see the other Applesauce Spice Bars. And check out this Tuesday's recipe, Creamiest Lime Cream Meringue Pie on the Tender Crumb blog by Linda.
