These Frosted Apple Blondies are soft and chewy with a hint of apple pie spice! Topping them off is a creamy brown sugar buttercream!
After going apple picking last weekend, I found myself having to search for places to keep apples after filling our refrigerator drawers and fruit bowl.
We do this every year. We go to the orchard and say, “We always pick way more apples than we need, we shouldn’t pick as many this year.” We still end up picking too many!
Because of our over abundance of apples, this weekend’s plans include making applesauce, caramel apples, and apple crisp!
But for now, we’re enjoying these frosted apple blondies. These soft, spiced blondies are filled with chopped fall apples and topped with a cinnamon and brown sugar frosting.
I was a little worried that adding a frosting to the blondies would make them too sweet, but the fresh apples add a bit of tartness that keeps the frosting from being too overpowering.
The brown sugar and cinnamon in the frosting give added flavor to a traditional buttercream frosting and tie the flavors of the frosting and blondies together.
I don’t normally like desserts that have frosting (I know, kind of weird), but I found myself having no problem at all enjoying a couple of these.
So, if your weekend plans involve baking with apples, more sure you add these frosted apple blondies to the list!
