Apple-Pumpkin Bars

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching (and Christmas right behind it) I wanted to share a recipe with you all that I delighted in making and will absolutely be a kicker in all your holiday functions.┬á I had the opportunity to attend a brunch with some other amazing Boston area (super talented) bloggers that was sponsored by Autumn Glory Apples and was hosted by fellow blogger Hunger Thirst Play. We all made different dishes featuring some pretty great apples and had a jolly old time. I decided to go with a sweet, slightly spicy dish in these bars.

Pumpkin Apple Bars w/ Brown Sugar Crumble

I needed to use some of the apples I had picked during our wonderful apple picking adventure and I had a can of organic pumpkin puree left, so I decided to throw some ingredients together and see what I came up with.

Modifications to your taste can be made and instead of separating the spices (someone in my household doesn’t like cinnamon) ­čÖé you could add a tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice which would really add a nice touch. You could also add some more nutmeg and allspice if you want the flavor to be a bit spicier. ┬áNeedless to say Autumn is my favorite season to cook and bake in especially this year, because I have learned a lot and have decided that experimenting is the way to go so I can show you all new and interesting things.
