  • Blondies:

  • 1

    cup hazelnuts

  • 3/4

    cup granulated sugar

  • 3/4

    cup packed light brown sugar

  • 1/2

    cup(1 stick) butter, melted

  • 2

    eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 2

    teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 2

    chopped, peeled and cored Fuji apples (about 2 cups)

  • Maple Icing:

  • 1

    8-ounce cream cheese, softened

  • 1

    cup confectioners' sugar

  • 2

    tablespoons maple syrup

  • 3/4

    cup vanilla extract

Directions

Blondies: Heat oven to 350 degrees . Coat a 12-cavity brownie pan (such as Wilton Brownie Bar Pan) with nonstick cooking spray. Place nuts on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool slightly and rub nuts with fingers to remove skin. Chop nuts and reserve. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine sugars, butter, eggs and vanilla. Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; stir into sugar-and-butter mixture until dry ingredients are just moistened. Fold in apples and 3/4 cup of the chopped nuts. Spoon batter into prepared brownie pan, about 1/3 cup into each cavity. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes; turn out onto rack to cool completely. Maple Icing: In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Gradually beat in sugar; add maple syrup and vanilla and beat until smooth. Frost each blondie with a generous 2 tbsp of icing. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts.
