I wanted something different to top my pork chops for dinner one night. I created this from things I had on hand. My picky-eater son loved it! This sauce would be great on chicken tenders too. If I had fresh ginger, I would have minced up about a tablespoon and substituted it for the powdered version.
These bars have a gooey, cheese cake-like top layer and a buttery cookie bottom layer. I adapted the recipe from one that called for pumpkin. I made these for Thanksgiving and they were gone before the meal was even served. We enjoyed them warm from the oven, topped with a dollop of whipped cream, heaven! We'll be haveing these every year from now on.
My mom used to make this for us with cheese toast. I know it is a simple recipe, but its good. The combination of the spiced fruit and gooey cheese is a marriage made in heaven! I am sure that is why some eat apple pie topped with cheese :)
