Cookie Recipe #276 - Apple Brownies
Do you remember visiting the apple orchards as a child? Apples and pumpkins, ghourds and squash-all reminders that old man winter is just around the corner. Brownies don't always have to be chocolate; this one is a blonde brownie loaded with flavorful apples and crunchy walnuts. Top with a scoop of ice cream for a delicious dessert.
Ingredients: 1/2 cup butter, melted, 1 cup granulated sugar, 1 egg, 3 medium apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced (I used granny smith), 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x9 inch baking pan. In a large bowl, beat together the melted butter, sugar, and egg until fluffy. Fold in the apples and walnuts. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Stir the flour mixture into the wet mixture until just blended. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared baking pan.
Bake 35 minutes in the preheated 350 degree oven, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool on a wire rack before cutting into squares or bars.
Makes 12 squares.
