These Apple Blondies with Walnuts and Cinnamon Brown Butter Glaze are To. Die. For. They are also born out of necessity.
You see, friends, if I don’t do something fast about the apple explosion currently underway in my backyard there’s a good chance my poor puppy is going to get concussed. Dangerous little apple bombs are flying off the tree at an alarming rate. So please, come get some apples from me and make these apple blondies. Do it for Theo’s safety.
And for yourself. I won’t blame you if it’s mostly for yourself. They’re that good.
If you’re looking for a new easy apple dessert recipe that really impresses then I’m pretty sure you’ve found it.
