Its HOT as Hell in Georgia right now. I just needed a little fall in my life. I wasn’t ready for pumpkin spice just yet so I opted for a cinnamon spiced apple recipe. The tart of the granny smith apples is delicious with the buttery and sugary blondie filling. Try an apple blondie square topped with vanilla ice cream and I promise you will feel a crispness in the air that wasn’t there before.
1 stick Butter
2 c Brown Sugar
1 1/2 c White Sugar
1 Tbs. Vanilla
1 tsp. Cinnamon
3/4 Tbs. Baking Powder
3 c Plain Flour
3 Granny Smith Apples (peeled, cored, and diced)
1 c Powdered Sugar
1 Tbs. Mayonnaise
2 Tbs. Half and Half
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 casserole dish with nonstick spray.
Melt butter and place in mixing bowl with brown sugar and white sugar. Mix well. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.
In a separate bowl mix flour, cinnamon, and baking powder until combined. Add to sugar mixture and mix until just combined. Batter will be very thick. Add apples and fold in.
Pour into prepared dish. Pat the batter into the corners. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes. The top will be golden brown and slightly gooey in the center.
Mix powdered sugar, mayo, and half and half with whisk until smooth. Pour over warm blondies.
Allow to cool completely before you slice.
I can never wait to slice so mine always has big scoops missing out of the corners.
Add 1 cup of pecans or walnuts
