Apple Annie bars

Steamboat Entertains

  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup strained applesauce
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves, ground
  • powdered sugar to top

Preheat oven to 375.

Cream shortening. Add sugar and egg; mix well. Add baking soda and applesauce. Sift remaining ingredients together; add to applesauce mixture and mix well. Pour into a greased and floured 13″ x 9″ pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool and cut into bars. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

*Chef’s note: Awesome! Really easy to make, and not too many ingredients. F.y.i., it’s basically a cake, not bars…. It was light and fluffy and tasted like fall :) I had only cinnamon applesauce on hand, so I used that and halved the amount of ground cinnamon added. I’m sure you could play around with the type of applesauce you put in, and next time I might try adding diced apples. And it would have been even better with a scoop of vanilla icecream on top!
