Apple Blondies

So, it took a while but we have finally consumed the 20 lbs of apples that we brought home from apple picking. This is the last recipe that we made. I was a little skeptical, but it turned out pretty well.

Kiddo, loved it. She loved the process and the results, we hope you will too.

Fringe benefit to cooking with my Kiddo: she is gaining so much confidence. I few weeks ago I asked her if she was good a baking and cooking. She said, “Yeah; I a good cooker!” I asked how she knew that she was good, and she responded by saying,  “I cook a lot. Like apple pie, and chicken, and pancakes.” So, in addition to sharing a fun activity, spending one-on-one time, watching her develop new skills and learn new words, I also get to see Kiddo learn to appreciate her skills and accomplishments.

OK, so back to the recipe. I found it on my favorite recipe site. But I am one of those annoying people who changes the original recipe before I even try it out, so the recipe below is my version.

Apple Blondies


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3 medium(ish) apples, peeled, cored, and diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup AP flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease an 8×8 inch baking pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Then add the egg and mix until fluffy.
  3. Fold in the apples and the walnuts (this is what the original recipe said, and I thought it was odd to do before adding the flour, but it turned out fine — also, Kiddo liked helping with this part).
  4. In a small bowl, sift together the dry ingredients. Stir the flour mixture into the wet mixture just until blended.
  5. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared baking pan.
  6. Bake for about 35 minutes, or until the top is golden an a toothpick comes out clean.
