Phyllis' Granny Smith Applesauce Squares

By: Phyllis K., Newton, Massachusetts

Phyllis' Granny Smith Applesauce Squares

I just put together a few easy-to-make, healthy recipes for back-to-school. This one substitutes applesauce for the large amount of butter and white sugar that traditionally makes up a dessert bar.

Yields: 20

Cooking Time: 25 min

Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup margarine, softened
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1 cup Granny Smith apples with skin on, small diced
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons margarine, melted
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F degree.
     
  2. Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan with butter spray.
     
  3. Mix together margarine, brown sugar, and egg until smooth.
     
  4. Stir in applesauce and chopped apples into the mixture.
     
  5. Add flour, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice, mix until well blended.
     
  6. Pour batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly with a spatula.
     
  7. Bake for 25 minutes in preheated oven, or until edges are golden.
     
  8. Cool in the pan over a wire rack.
     
  9. In a small bowl, mix together the powdered sugar and margarine.
     
  10. Stir in vanilla and milk until smooth.
     
  11. Spread over cooled bars before cutting into squares.
