Tuesdays with Dorie is brought to us this week by Karen at Something Sweet by Karen. I made these bars last week to serve along with the Brownie Buttons at our open house. I wasn't there for the open house, but there were hardly any goodies left when we got home, so I'd say they were a hit.
The changes I made to the original recipe were fairly minimal - I browned the butter and used pecans. I also used a Fuji apple because it was what I had on hand, and left out the raisins because I didn't have any on hand. My toddler really loved these, but wasn't as big of a fan of the nuts in them. I would most likely made these again, but may try making them without the nuts and just add some more apple or something instead - or maybe cinnamon or toffee chips for something a little different!
All in all, we really enjoyed these (the glaze was of course the best part for me :)
Make sure to check the TWD blogroll for lots more apple-y goodness!
Not much of an update on the preggers front here at this point. Still sick, still tired. Still job searching and still being stressed out (but trying not to be). Anyway, I don't really want to dwell on it too much today, but I did want to say that I'm so grateful to you all for being here and for your support! I really hope to get a bit more back into the swing of things soon! I have several things that I've made when I've felt up to it that I want to share with you, so hopefully the energy to get the posts done and think of something even remotely inspired to say will start sparking in my brain soon.
Love you all! Thanks so much!!
