Maple Glazed Apple Blondies

It’s finally feeling like fall here in Southeastern PA and I’m so ready to go apple picking, carve pumpkins and wrap myself if fuzzy blankets. I had a couple apples that I needed to use and an entire jug of maple syrup waiting for me, so I whipped up a batch of these delicious treats.

The blondies are so good. They are packed full of maple flavor and are sprinkled with bits of fresh apples.

1 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
3 cups chopped and peeled apples

1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup packed brown sugar

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line at 9×13 pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Spray with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, maple syrup and vanilla. Add in the eggs and combine. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, salt and baking soda. Add to the wet mixture and mix until just combined. Fold in the apples. The batter will be thick.

Spread the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and place on a cooling rack. While the pan is cooling slightly, make the glaze. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Add the maple syrup and sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until the glaze thickens. Pour over the warm blondies. Allow to completely cooling. Remove the blondies from the pan and cut into desired size.
