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.
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.
