Ingredients

For the blondies

  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups apples, finely diced
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, optional

For the brown sugar frosting

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar

Instructions

Blondie Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. In a large microwave proof bowl, melt butter. Beat in sugar and eggs until fluffy. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and baking powder.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir until just combined. Gently fold in apples and pecans, if desired. Pour the batter into a greased 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Frosting Directions

  • While they are baking, make the brown sugar frosting. Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and salt, heat until bubbly and let bubble for about 2 mins. Add the milk and cook for another 30-60 seconds until no longer grainy. Remove the pan from the heat and add the vanilla and powdered sugar. Beat until smooth. Add more milk if necessary to thin it out.
  • Frost the bars with the warm frosting about 2 minutes after they come out of the oven. Let cool completely before cutting.
