Karen of Something Sweet by Karen picked Applesauce Spice Bars for today's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe. If you'd like to make these wonderfully spicy and moist bars visit her website for the recipe. The best part was definitely the caramelly topping/glaze. My son ate these for breakfast this morning. My justification for giving him such a sugar-filled breakfast was telling myself it's really not that bad since there's applesauce and apples in the bar. The texture of mine turned out more cake-like than bar-like but were yummy all the same.
This recipe couldn't have come at a better time. My best friend is going to visit family in Croatia for 3 weeks and as a result she had to get rid of a lot of food from her house. I happily inherited a huge bag of apples, a box of phyllo pastry and a bunch of eggs (among other things). As a result, I have been on the lookout for apple recipes. Now as for the phyllo pastry... I'm totally not sure what I will use it for. I've never used phyllo before so I'm a little intimidated. If you have any easy recipes (sweet or savory, either one), I'd love to give them a shot.
