Applesauce Bars

This is my Grandma Horn's recipe. I think I am going to make them for the potluck at the park tommorow. I usually omit the nuts and I'm not sure if I have any raisins so I'll probably give it a whirl without the raisins too. I took them once to a big playgroup get-together and they were a big hit.
Applesauce Bars

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon cloves, ground
3/4 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup applesauce
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup oil
1 teaspoon baking soda
Cream Cheese Frosting
3 ounces cream cheese
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
milk, as needed

1. Place flour, cinnamon, salt, allspice, cloves, nuts, and raisins in large bowl and mix well
2. Combine applesauce, sugar, oil, and soda in small bowl and mix well
3. Pour applesauce mixture into flour mixture and mix well
4. Pour onto greased cookie sheet and bake 20 minutes at 350.
5. Frost with Cream Cheese Frosting while warm
7. For frosting:
8. Beat cream cheese, butter, and vanilla on low speed until light.
9. Gradually add powdered sugar and beat until fluffy
