Apple Cinnamon Cookie Bars
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of fresh nutmeg
1/8 tsp allspice
Pinch of ground cloves
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 T vanilla extract
1/2-3/4 cup raisins (you can leave these out or try dried cranberries)
2 apples, cored and diced, I used Granny Smith
Cinnamon Sugar mixture to sprinkle on top
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 by 13 pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter with the sugars on medium until creamy. This will take a minute or two. Scrape down the sides if necessary.
On low, add the eggs, one at a time. Beat until combined. Add in the vanilla. Beat on medium until everything is smooth and mixed together.
Turn mixer on low. Add a little flour. Slowly mix and add until all of the flour is combined. Don't over mix.
Stir in the raisins and apples.
Spread the dough evenly into prepared pan. Use a spatula to make sure the dough is nice and even. Sprinkle the dough with the cinnamon/sugar mixture.
Bake for about about 30 minutes. You want the bars to be golden brown.
Remove the pan from the oven and cool on a rack. Cut the bars once they are cool. Serve and enjoy!
