Well we can all thank Katie for this wonderful yumminess! I saw these on her blog and KNEW I needed to make them! They combine my favorite desert items, apples and SUGAR! Plus Chris will be back in town today and I knew he would love them so I quickly (seriously it was quick!) threw them together last night!
2 c. all purpose flour 2 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp salt 2 tsp ground cinnamon 1/8 tsp nutmeg 1/8 tsp allspice small pinch ground cloves 1/2 c. butter, melted 1 c. packed brown sugar 1 c. white sugar 2 eggs 1 Tbsp vanilla extract (I must admit I thought this was a typo and didn't use this much but it still turned out great but could have been better I'm sure!) 2 apples, cored and diced (a little less than 2 c.) cinnamon sugar for sprinkling
Directions: -Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 9x13 pan with foil and baking spray. -In medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves. -Whisk to combine well and set aside. -In bowl of stand mixer, combine sugars and butter and beat on medium high until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. -Add eggs, one at a time, beating well to combine. -Add vanilla extract and beat to combine. -Turn mixer on slow and fold in flour mixture a little at a time until just combined. -Fold in apples. -Spread mixture evenly into prepared pan and sprinkle top generously (I may have taken this work TOO literally! lol) with cinnamon sugar. -Place in oven and bake until cooked through, when top slightly bounces back to the touch, about 30 minutes. -Remove from oven and let cool completely before removing from pan, cutting and serving. (bars will be very soft)
I'm southern, I live in the north (you'll never convince me MD is not the north) and I'm slightly sarcastic, sorry it just happens, like poop happens, my sarcasm happens too~
I LOVE my husband, my daughter, and my dogs, and I’m a Christian, though not always the best example. I try to do it all, but know i can't alone. I brighten my journey with a few bows, sparkles, monograms, and heels. This is how I brought my southern roots to the north!
