Apple Blondies

These Apple Blondies are a perfect Autumn dessert that mixes apple pie and blondies. These Apple Blondies served with a large scoop of ice cream make for the most delicious fall treat!  My family actually asks for them all year long. Fall is my favorite season. I love the cooler weather and fewer bugs. I also love going to the mountains and seeing all the beautiful colors of the changing season.

The smell of apple and cinnamon just puts you in the fall state of mind.
Our family enjoys visiting apple orchards, picking pumpkins and eating apples that were picked just minutes before. Fresh ripe, crunchy apples are one of my greatest flavor experiences every year.

 The first time I made these they were like Apple Pie meets Blondie. The bar had the consistency of a cake like brownie but tasted like apple pie. These Apple Pie Bondies are extremely easy to make, the hardest part is chopping up the apples.
These Apple Blondies make a great potluck, or party dish!
