Spicy Bars

Mix 1/2 cup butter, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup applesauce ~ I used cherries.  Sift and add 2 cups flour, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. cinnamon.  Stir in the following:  1 cup raisins, 1/2 cup nuts, 1 tsp. vanilla.  Mix well and spread batter into greased 9 X 13 pan.  Batter will be somewhat thick.  Bake 40 minutes.  Frost while still warm.

This recipe works well with lots of fruit.  This has been successfully made with 1 cup applesauce, fresh apricots, fresh prunes, fresh peaches, and this today was fresh cherries.  I made the frosting a with just water, vanilla and powdered sugar.  I always double this and it works fine, it fits in a jelly roll pan.  Thanks for Buzzing by,
