Fall is nearly here! I can hardly believe how quickly the summer went. We spent the third week of August vacationing at the shore, and the weather could not have been more summery and perfect. When we got home, it was like someone had flipped a switch. Suddenly the weather was still perfect but not at all summery. The temperature had dropped, along with the humidity, and now here we are with the most gorgeous cool, breezy, and sunshine-y days. I’m loving it.

And I’m feeling so inspired to dive in to Fall baking! That crisp air just begs for something warm and cinnamon-y baking in the oven. These apple blondies are the answer. They whip up in a snap and they make your whole house smell incredible. Perfect for an after school treat!

I recommend baking them with SweeTango® apples! They’re juicy and sweet and just lovely for baking. This bar recipe features brown sugar, maple, and a hint of cinnamon, and it really allows the bright flavor of the SweeTangos to shine!

I hope you’ll give apple blondies a try!
