Apple Butterscotch Blondies

It’s apple season and there are so many good things to make with apples. I found this recipe in one of my food magazines and decided to give it a try. We had bacon, lettuce, tomato and over easy egg sandwiches on sour dough bread for dinner and these made the perfect dessert. Another bonus is they are super easy to make.

Preheat the oven to 350.

1 cup all purpose flour

1/2 tsp kosher salt

1/4 tsp baking powder

6 T unsalted butter

3/4 cup brown sugar (packed)

1 tsp pure vanilla

2 large eggs

2 medium apples peeled, cored and finely chopped

1/3 cup butterscotch chips

I mixed everything in one saucepan. Melt the butter in the saucepan swirling occasionally until the butter begins to brown. Remove from the heat and whisk in the brown sugar and vanilla until the sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool briefly and whisk in the 2 eggs until well combined.

With the a rubber spatula mix in the dry ingredients (flour, salt and baking powder). Stir in the diced apples and butterscotch chips. Pour the batter into a 9″x9″ pan lined with foil. Bake for 25 minutes or until the top is lightly browned and the sides are set.

Cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!

You might want to add a little whipped cream or a scoop of butter pecan or vanilla bean ice cream.

I will definitely be making these again. I might try substituting some golden raisins or chopped walnuts for the butterscotch chips. Of course I’d have to call them apple raisin Blondies or apple walnut Blondies. That’s the beauty of baking and cooking. You can make modifications to recipes to suit your personal tastes.
