Angie's Story

My sixteen year old daughter came home from school yesterday all upset and crying from her stessful day at school (peer pressure). After she talked everything out with me, she tore into the kitchen (bowls banging, pots slamming) and created these awesome applesauce bars. I hate to say it, but I hope she gets stressed-out more often. These are AMAZING...

    These sound good but is there any apples or applesauce in the recipe?

    I see where it says to add applesauce but no where in the recipe does it say how much applesauce is required either! Otherwise, this sounds really good.

    Sorry ladies, I missed the applesauce amount. It is 1 c. applesauce.

    I tried these and they were wonderful! They were quite a hit at church. I used more frosting than called for here. And just a note: the 9x13 pan makes these pretty thin. If you want thicker ones, you might try a 9x9. Thanks for the recipe! Your daughter works well under pressure! ;)
