Ginger Apple Bars
Purchase one 14 ounce package gingerbread mix, add one egg and one cup applesauce instead of the liquid called for, and stir in one cup white raisins and ½ cup nutmeats. Mix thorough and spread the batter over a greased 8" x 12" x 1" pan and bake in a hot oven until cake springs bake from sides of pan. Cool slightly and ice (in the pan) with a thick orange butter-sugar icing. With a sharp knife cut into 1" x 4" bars. Yield: one dozen.
