Tuesdays with Dorie: Applesauce Spice Bars

This is going to be short and sweet because I'm running low on time. This week's recipe was chosen by Karen of Something Sweet by Karen. As much as I love chocolate sometimes it's nice to make something that doesn't include me having to chop bittersweet chocolate. The bars were really, really good. The batter made a super-moist, tasty cake chock full of pecans, crisp apple bits and plump raisins. Doug got the job of peeling the apple with this contraption that he loves. I doubled the glaze and OMG it was soooo good. I told Doug "this tastes like fall" and it does, which makes me long for cooler days and Honeycrisp apples. A repeat recipe for sure, although next time I'll bake it in cupcake form to make it easier to share. Thanks Karen!
(These pictures might not look very appetizing but trust me, these were excellent!)

I love those old peelers, wish I had one!

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

I can't believe you busted out the apple-peeling machine thing for just one apple. :P

Glad the bars were a success.
