Apple Snack Bars

 Although these Apple Snack Bars are good on their own, it's the frosting that makes them special!  Yum!

Apple Snack Bars

1/3 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup peeled, grated apple

In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar.  Add egg and vanilla and beat until combined.  Mix in flour, baking powder and salt just until combined.  Stir in the grated apple until evenly distributed.  Spread into a greased 8x8 baking pan and bake for 30 minutes or until the center springs back when touched.  Cool completely and then frost with Brown Sugar Frosting.

Brown Sugar Frosting

1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/8 cup milk
1 cup powdered sugar

Meld butter in a medium saucepan.  Add brown sugar and milk; bring to a boil.  Remove from heat.  Let cool for 5 minutes.  Stir in powdered sugar until smooth.  Spread over cooled bars.
