  1. Aplets

    4 tablespoons Plain gelatin 2 teaspoons Lemon juice 2 1/4 cups Unsweetened applesauce 2 cups Chopped
    nuts 2 teaspoons Vanilla 4 cups Sugar Confectioners' sugar

    Aplets are a great bar cookie for summertime or school lunch boxes! In Washington State, and other
    places where they are marketed, you can buy Aplets and Cotlets and Grapelets. With this recipe you
    can make your own.

    In cup or small bowl stir gelatin into 1 cup applesauce; set aside until gelatin dissolves. In
    medium saucepan stir sugar into remaining applesauce. Add gelatin dissolved in applesauce. Over
    medium heat, stir constantly and bring to boil; turn heat to lowest setting and simmer 15 minutes,
    stirring occasionally. Add lemon juice last 5 minutes of cooking. Remove from heat. Add vanilla and
    nuts. Pour into buttered 8-inch square pan. Cover loosely and let stand overnight. When firm, cut
    into 1 inch squares. Roll in confectioner's sugar.
