As we reach mid-September, who else is getting excited for fall baking? While I am sad to see summer go, fall is one of my favourite seasons of the year. I love the changing leaves, and the warm spices that make their autumnal debut. To get ready for the season this year, I made these Apple Spiced Walnut Blondies. These blondie bars are filled with honey crisp apples, cinnamon, and are topped with a crisp ground walnut. They are melt-in-your-mouth moist and have subtle hints of cinnamon and vanilla. These bars are also lovely paired with vanilla ice cream if you're looking to indulge.

Warm notes of cinnamon and honey crisp apples, a perfect dessert to embrace fall.
