We went camping this weekend as a family. I sure love the mountains in Utah. They are so peaceful and beautiful. Fall is definitely in the air and the leaves were beautiful. I love the changing colors in the leaves. We had such a fun time together as a family. It is nice to get away from the busyness of life and enjoy a little getaway without cell phone service. My favorite part of camping is foil dinners and s’mores for dessert. We had such an amazing time together!
With Fall comes baking. I especially love to bake with apples. When you add apple to a blondie it is out of this world! The flavor combination in these blondies were so good. The maple glaze on top was my favorite part! It was like a caramel maple glaze and gave it such an awesome finishing touch. And then the blondie was so moist and flavorful with apples baked right inside! If you are looking for an incredible fall apple blondie, look no further!

- In a large bowl or mixer beat brown sugar, melted butter, syrup and vanilla until blended. Beat in eggs.
- In a separate bowl whisk together flour, salt and baking soda. Add to the sugar mixture and combine well. Stir in apples. The batter will be thick.
