i canned a whole lOTT, now i'm baking in my bistro.... applesauce bars

Back this week with another recipe from something I canned.  Now if you'll recall I canned applesauce, so this recipe is for applesauce bars.     
This is a great fall time recipe which I could easily whip up with the applesauce sitting in jars on my pantry shelves. 
Applesauce Bars Recipe
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. ground cinnamon 1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
4 eggs, beaten
1 pint applesauce
1 cup cooking oil

Cream Cheese Frosting:
1 8 oz. pkg cream cheese
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. almond extract
4 cups powdered sugar
3-4 tsp. milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a bowl stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and cloves.  Stir in eggs, applesauce and oil until combined.  Pour into ungreased 15x10x1 inch baking pan.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the3 center comes out clean.  Cool in pan.  Mix up cream cheese frosting and spread on top.

YUMMY! This just may be my next project since there are still apples out on my tree! That is unless I get a call to cut beans. I feel like a doctor on call, not knowing when or if I will be needed. ACK! Makes it kind of hard to plan anything, but hopefully only about a week and a half more of this. PLEASE KNOCK ON SOME WOOD RIGHT NOW!

Hey Ott A you hott A! ;) I was just telling a friend that for my one daughter, it is only applesauce that she will eat when it comes to fruit, so these bars are right up our alley because I want to get more of that good stuff into her! thanks so much for sharing this on the hearth and soul hop!

Mmmm...the bars look great, and I love the cream cheese frosting!

I'm kind of jealous, I haven't even canned applesauce yet, they're still on the tree. But someday quite soon, maybe even tomorrow! Thank you for sharing your recipe with the Hearth and Soul hop. I'd make these just for the cream cheese icing.

Thanks. I just popped it in the oven. I'm going to look for a recipe for caramel icing recipe since I think apples and caramel go together. This is just the same as my recipe for pumpkin--and it's really good, so I can image that any pureed fruit will turn out a good result.
