For bars, beat butter, brown sugar, and egg. Stir in applesauce. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. Gradually stir flour mixture into applesauce mixture until well combined. Stir in raisins. Spread batter into greased 8x8 pan and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. Allow to cool.
