Apple Cinnamon Blondies

I always thought that summer was my favorite season, but this year I can’t wait for the temperature to go down a bit.  Maybe it was the ultra-hot weather this summer that was more conducive to air conditioning than afternoon walks.  I’m not quite sure, but whatever it is I’m ready for fall.

And in the spirit of fall, there are few better ways to get started than with apples.  I have always had a weakness for any dessert loaded with giant chunks of apples and flavored with spicy cinnamon, so these Apple Cinnamon Blondies are absolutely perfect.  They are chewy and delicious on their own, but even better warm with a scoop of ice cream, given that they seem like an apple pie/blondie hybrid.

I’m sharing the recipe over on Baked by Rachel as a part of her Apple a Day Party!  Rachel is celebrating apples all month long!

And speaking of fall, Keep It Sweet Desserts has two brand new cookies!  The first is the Smoked Sea Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie.  It is a spin-off from a popular cookie I sent out for Cookie of the Month Club in the spring.  The other is one of my favorites, a Cinnamon and Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pie Cookie.  You don’t want to miss out.

    I’m ready for fall also, at least if we can have it so that winter does NOT come after it. :) I’m an apple a day kinda gal and I have no qualms about getting it in in blondie form! These look awesome.

    wow. These look awesome. I love apple cinnamon, but especially in the fall. And those sea-salted caramel cookies sound freaking heavenly!

    Woo hoo, welcome fall! Apples are one of my favorite foods, whether raw or baked up into treats, so I’m excited for it to be their season once more. These blondies look great. :)

    Thank you so much for joining in on the apple fun! I wish I had several of these right now. Fruit in them means they’re totally okay for breakfast, right? :)

    It’s still a bit humid and sticky here, but after looking at your photos, I’m craving knee socks and nubby sweaters and of course, a batch these blondies!
