Tuesdays With Dorie – Applesauce Spice Bars

by Jessica on August 18, 2009

Santa Fe

This week I’m in Santa Fe, enjoying the annual antique show, eating chocolate molten cake at the Cowgirl and (after many, many years of traveling out here every August) taking classes at the Santa Fe School of Cooking. Today’s class is Southwestern BBQ and the menu looks fabulous… Chile-Glazed Baby Back Pork Ribs, Spicy Mexican Pinto Beans, Blue Cornbread, Orange Cilantro Salsa, Guacamole and Rum Raisin Pecan Cake. You can definitely count on some yummy posts when I return!

Applesauce Spice Bars

Before I left on Sunday, I made these amazing Applesauce Spice Bars… which instantly made me feel like it was late October. I’m so ready for Fall, it’s not funny. Like, ‘I’ve-been-craving-a-Pumpkin-Spice-Latte-for-the-past-month-and-a-half’ ready. So these were just the perfect little treat for bag-packing. I doubled the spice as a few of the girls suggested in last week’s P&Q and they couldn’t have tasted better!

Big thanks to Karen of Something Sweet by Karen for this week’s fab choice! Click her blog link for the recipe and don’t forget to check out the other TWD bakers here! 🙂

Hi Jessica!

How are you? I hope you’re having lots of fun on your vacation in Santa Fe, especially at that amazing cooking class! I can’t wait to read your post about all you learned… those recipes sound DELISH!

Well, I hope you’ll be back in your kitchen by Sunday, because I’m hosting SMS this week, and I would LOVE for you to bake along with me! And bonus- the recipe I selected is homey and fall-like, so I hope it gives you the feeling that the season is almost here. Oh, and if you’re interested in checking out last week’s truffles, feel free to drop by my site (don’t forget to say hello, it’s always lovely to hear from you!) Hope you’re doing well, and I look forward to talking to you again soon. Have a great rest of your week 🙂

Oh wow, gorgeous photos!! Your bars look amazing – especially with the glaze dripping over the sides. I’m so ready for fall too and I loved these bars. I gave most of them away to remove the temptation 🙂

Hope you’re having a great trip! Can’t wait to hear about it.
