If you need a homespun snack or bake sale treat that can be assembled in a hurry, try these moist nutty bars. The squares are sweet, flavorful and loaded with chopped apple and nuts. Best of all, they won't break the bank because they cost only 15¢ per bar. —Jennifer Dzubinski San Antonio, Texas

"I was looking for an quick and easy dessert that said "autumn" to me. This recipe fit the bill very nicely! I did think that 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon wouldn't be enough, so I bumped that up to 1 tsp and added some allspice and a little nutmeg, as well. With the additional spices, the result was delicious and worthy of 5 stars. My husband loved it, which isn't an easy accomplishment."

"A nice recipe. Bars have a great crunch on the outside, but are very moist inside. Could use some additional seasoning such as cloves, allspice, or more cinnamon, but otherwise very good."
