A FALL-INSPIRED BLONDIE RECIPE

These apple blondies are always a huge hit with family and friends. I have a Granny Smith tree in my back yard and I end up making so many fresh apple recipes. This is one of my personal favorites!

TIPS FOR MAKING MAPLE GLAZED APPLE BLONDIES

  • These blondies can be made and frozen to eat for later. Just wrap it up well so they don’t get freezer burned.
  • Use any green apple for this recipe. Golden Delicious and Granny Smith work best.
  • If you only have salted butter, just substitute it with unsalted butter and just skip the additional salt in this recipe.

    Apple pastries with vanilla ice cream on top is a match made in heaven. It's like they were truly meant to be together. This, apple pie, apple dumplings… all great on their own, but on a whole new level with just some vanilla ice cream on top.
