Applesauce Spice Bars

Makes: 2 dozen bars

1 c. flour
2/3 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/4 c. butter
1 c. applesauce
1 egg

Browned Butter Frosting
3 T. butter
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 - 1 1/2 T. milk

In a large bowl, combine all bar ingredients; mix thoroughly. Spread in a greased 13 x 9 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. When cool, frost with Browned Butter Frosting. Cut into bars.

To make frosting, heat butter in a saucepan over medium heat until it turns a delicate brown; remove from heat. Blend in remaining ingredients; beat until frosting is smooth and a spreading consistency.

Tips: These spice bars had a great flavor if you enjoy the spices in pumpkin pie spice (I love them!). These did not bake up much but still had the consistency of cake. This might be due to the high altitude where I am so yours might be different. The frosting begins to harden quickly so be prepared to spread fast. I also shared this recipe at Somewhat Simple's Strut Your Stuff Thursday.
