      Awesome recipe, I had the pumpkin version last week at a relative's house and it was really good, BUT there was a grittiness to it. She agreed. This week I decided to try to the applesause version. On the icing portion of the recipe, I am thinking there may be a part left out of the instructions as there seems to be a lot of powdered sugar. Additionally, you wrote, "Gradually beat in enough of the remaining powdered sugar to make the frosting of spreading consistency." This would seem to indicate you may have added a lesser amount to begin with?

      Very moist bars! I used cloves & cinnamon for the spices. I also added a tsp. of maple extract to the frosting and topped w/ chopped pecans! I would probably use an 11x17 pan next time since they were a little high over the pan once I added the frosting. Will definitely make again!
