My family and I love apples any time of the year, but right now they are crisp, juicy and absolutely perfect! I found a blondie recipe similar to this and did a little bit of tweaking to make it our own. —Julie Peterson, Crofton, Maryland

"Good recipe. I did change it just slightly. I NEVER peel apples. I want that fiber and nutrients that are in the peels. I cut down the sugar because I am watching my carbs. Since I did this, I added cinnamon to help flavor the dough more. Yes, it probably needed that sugar I had removed, but at least I could have a very, very small piece of this dessert. Husband noted that the recipe needed the cinnamon , even if I had used the entire amount of sugar. :-) Like me, he likes cinnamon."
