Glazed Apple-Maple Blondies Recipe

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

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 31, 2014

These were really simple to make but agree about the consistency and texture. Unlike the reader below, the first day mine were more cake like than brownie. After they sat, the texture became more gooey, I guess. I'm assuming from the glaze soaking in more. They had a nice balance of apple and maple flavors. If I make them again I might try adding a little cinnamon.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 24, 2014

I followed the recipe exactly. The result was very tasty but was very different in consistency than pictured and than I expected. I ended up with more of a bread pudding type of dessert, which we warmed and served with vanilla ice cream. It was delicious, but I was hoping for more of a cookie/blondie with frosting.
