I love Fall! I love everything about it.
I love cozy sweaters, coats, boots, the crisp wind on my cheeks in the morning and especially the food.  Wrap me up in a blanket at night during dinner over a warm bowl of soup and I’m the happiest the girl in the world.  October is the time for my 2 favorite holidays, Halloween and my birthday. :D).   Halloween is the best time of the year with pumpkin picking, ghosts covering front lawns (or what New Yorkers consider lawns), spooky spiderwebs over doors and little kids trick or treating up their street of brownstones.  I wish our apartment building had trick or treaters!

Why else is Fall the best?  Apple picking!  We usually rent a car and head to Hurd’s Family Farm in New York during this time of the year. There we pick bags of apple, dance down the orchard and then celebrate afterwards with their delicious apple cider donuts and apple cider.  Yeah, there’s alot of apple love happening here!

With a bunch of apples, you can make so many goodies.  One of my favorite is homemade cinnamon sugar apple sauce, it’s the perfect snack at night, especially warmed up!  Did I mention sea salt apple chips too? I can’t get enough of them!  But for this apple recipe I wanted something sweet, something I can sink my teeth into with a nice cup of tea – that’s how Apple Spice Crumble Bars came to be!

These bars are delicious, they will quickly become a family and friend favorite.  Take them to a party and they will be gone within minutes.  The applesauce makes the bars moist without the oil.  The recipe uses a entire cup of applesauce making your kitchen smell like a apple wonderland.

I hope you enjoy these bars, it’s one of my favorite apple recipes!
First you need some quality apple sauce.  This is some that is made at a local farm.   Or you can make your own.
