My 6-year-old son and I conjured up this recipe to use the last of the apples we picked from the local apple orchard. Each bar goes beautifully with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream. —Heather Bates, Athens, Maine

Ingredients

  • 1-1/3 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups chopped peeled apples (about 3 medium)
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 13x9-in. baking pan with parchment, letting ends extend up sides.
  2. In a large bowl, beat brown sugar, melted butter, syrup and vanilla until blended. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. In another bowl, whisk flour, salt and baking soda; gradually beat into brown sugar mixture. Stir in apples (batter will be thick).
  3. Transfer batter to prepared pan. Bake until top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in center comes out with moist crumbs, 25-30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat; stir in syrup and brown sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir until slightly thickened, 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat; cool slightly.
  5. Pour glaze over warm blondies. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars.
