The Best Apple Dessert For Fall

This recipe as been a classic on my site for so many years. I wanted to give the photos a little spruce up, but I left the recipe EXACTLY the same. Sometimes things are just perfect as-is!

It’s September, which means apple vibes are in full effect. BUT I have to say that I am an apple girl all year long. Certainly they’re in abundance this time of year, but I don’t discriminate when it comes to my sweet treats. That would be wrong.

And the great thing about this recipe is you can make it like I show here…with tart apple pieces and toffee bits inside a buttery blondie, topped with a rich and sweet frosting…OR you can leave out the toffee bits, if that isn’t your thing…or even leave off the frosting!

Personally, I am a frosting girl, but I have made these and dusted them with a little powdered sugar and they were still amazing. The frosting is just an added bonus for those of us with a serious sweet tooth!

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

  1. Ok, I heard about this Kardashians clothing line. It sounds just straight U-G-L-Y, you ain’t got no alibi you ugly, ya ya you ugly. I hope today starts off slightly less bizarre. Maybe you should eat these for breakfast, that’ll get your day headed in the right direction!

    This post cracks me up. Your husband seems to be very easy going! 🙂
    These look delicious – pinning them for this weekend when I’ve got a hard-working, hungry crew of men here harvesting corn. Gotta love fall!

  3. A. Can’t tie a cherry with my tongue.
    B. Don’t watch her show.
    C. Don’t watch that show.
    D. Glad he didn’t miss the bus
    E. Don’t watch their show and tired of seeing their faces at my supermarket check-out.
    F. Love this recipe, love that there is fruit in it and that it’s apple and love that it has a brown sugar frosting.

  4. Brown sugar frosting?? Now that sounds amazing to me! I sure hope your day got a lot better after posting this! I mean if you ate more of these bars, I’m sure that would help:-)

  5. OMG seriously…you almost make me piddle in my pants. I hate when I have those kinds of dreams when I wake up pissed at the world! I have actually woken up and gave my sleeping husband a huge punch on the arm because he was “cheating” on me with Susan Boyle!
    And “Like oh.my.God” I cant believe the Kardashians are selling at Sears. I mean, they could have made a deal with JCPennys at least!
    But I do love your yummy dessert. That makes up for my husband cheating on me with Susan Boyle

  6. I have this weird feeling that I’ve made these before…it goes really well with your weird morning. I saw a commercial for an episode of the Kardashians where they were talking about their clothing line. Apparently there is “something for everyone”. Unless you don’t like leopard.

  7. Such a LOVELY and oh so YUMMY looking dessert with fruit in it! I’ve been excited to start baking with apples as Fall has gotten into full swing here in Southern NH….your recipe is just what I’ve been looking for! Many, many thanks! 🙂

  8. This is a GREAT one Shel! I don’t know how you come up with these things! This one is going to be a hit…perfect for fall. Now for the list…I can tie a cherry with my tongue. Does this change what you think of me? I saw the housewife thing too. From the dentist’s office. All I could think is that my life would be much improved if I looked like her. I know someone who is Toddler and Tiara’s material, and I shift between wanting to punch her, and thinking about abducting her child. And, um, I bet Kim Kardashian can buy clothes from the Salvation Army and still look drop dead gorgeous. That’s my two cents for the week.

  9. These sound delicious and the icing takes these to a whole nother level. I relatively new to your blog and I’m still in awe of your recipes and photos. You’ve created a beautiful spot for your readers to visit and I really enjoy the time I spend here. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

  10. Haha, I love the bit about your dream and getting mad at your husband. I sometimes find it difficult to forgive people for things they’ve done in my dreams. They should be more careful about how they behave in my head!

    I don’t even know where to begin on these. They look so good, I’m wondering when I could make them!

  11. I was just about to make your Chocolate Toffee Bars, and now? This deliciousness! I don’t know what to do! Which to make?! But this is a good sign when this is the today’s hardest decision.
