This recipe is excellent. I made it for a fish fry at our church, and they were gone very quickly. Everyone commented on how good they were!!

I took these to work last week and they were LOVED by all! I used margarine in place of butter, unsweetened applesauce & light sour cream. I also omitted the raisins and pecans because I didn't have them on hand. I didn't have allspice either so I used 1/2 t. ginger and 1/2 t. nutmeg. Next time I will probably cut the sugar in the bars to 3/4 c. and possibly cut it in the frosting too I thought the frosting was too sweet, but my co-workers said it was great!. This is definitely a keeper!
