Apple Blondies Are One Of the Best Apple Desserts 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.

Apple Toffee Blondies Topped With Brown Sugar Frosting…Oh My!

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!
