    CJSchmitt's Note:

    I have had this recipe in my file for a number of years, I don't know the origin. My family loves the flavor but the cookies are hard to make and handle so I turned it into bars. The bars are much easier to make and handle. We most often omit the glaze because it can be too sweet; although powdered sugar sprinkled on the cooled bars would dress them up for guests.

      I made these as bars and they were not crumbly at all. Moist and the fresh apples were a nice touch. A little spicy for me. Next time I will delete the cloves and use 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg. I like the cinnamon amount.

      just exceelnt in flavor! One thing is mine was alittle on the crumbly side, so next time I will add another egg. We all really enjoyed this wonderful bar. I will be making it again! It is easy too. What I did different, instead of milk in the frosting, I added apple cider instead. I halved the frosting part, just to drizzle a small mount on top, it was perfect. A Very nice recipe CJ !!!
