Apple Cinnamon Bars
These chewy bars use apple butter to stand in for much of the fat you'd normally find in a bar cookie. Their robust apple flavor is out in front, with just enough sweetness to make them equally welcome for a snack as dessert. For a change, try making with them pumpkin butter instead of apple butter; the pumpkin is an excellent partner for the whole-grain flour in the recipe. This recipe comes to us from John Blair and Lucy Jane Webster, passionate home bakers from Toledo, Ohio.
