Baking With Dorie: Applesauce Spice Bars

This week it's Chaya of Chaya's Comfy Cook Blog's turn for hosting BWD and she has chosen Applesauce Spice Bars on page 117 of Baking From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan. Hop over to her blog for the recipe!

I loved preparing this week's bake as it did not take any time at all!! And the ingredients of apple, pecan and cinnamon made the kitchen smell terribly wonderful as they were baking in the oven.

A little note: I omitted the raisins and substituted applesauce with homemade apple puree. Plus there were not enough glaze to cover the entire bar, so I made double the recipe.

A lovely snack to have with tea, the minimal ingredients yielded 32 little bars!! I saved a few pieces for home and took a dozen bars to my sister's place and the rest will be shared with the lovely people at the office!

See how the other BWD bakers did this week here.


  1. I agree,this was a fast,easy bake! I had all the ingredients on hand and they went together so quickly. Your bars look perfect!

  2. I'm glad they're easy to make- I'll be trying to make them later today, after I go to the grocery store for the mad holiday food buying.


  3. Yours turned out beautifully. They are perfect. I baked it in the parchment paper which buckled so my cake had some interesting indents. Who cares? I love this.

  4. Your bars look lovely. And oh, that glaze ! I"m going to definitely make double the quantity now that I've read everyone else's posts. My post will be up some time tomorrow!
