Heavenly Goo!

I am a huge fan of Dorie's Blondie recipe, in her book Baking From My Home to Yours. But I wanted to put a new spin on it and see if I could create my own special blondie recipe, and Bloggers, I did it! My recipe is a Caramel Apple Pecan Blondie, and it will knock your socks off! I am a caramel apple addict and have been craving something caramely for a while, so I figured I'd give my theory a whirl.

I must say that I was getting a little nervous when I was pouring the caramel into the batter, because I was so afraid that it wasn't going to work and that I was gonna have this awful glob of dough...but NO! My caramel beat in perfectly with the butter and brown sugar. After I had the dry ingredients mixed in, I folded my chopped Granny Smith Apple and the pecans. Let me tell you guys, this was probably the best dough I HAVE EVER had! I could not put my spoon down, so that gave me much hope that my blondies were going to turn out great.

After letting them cool, I made the first nail biting slice and was greeted with a smile on my face. The caramel apple blondies looked like real blondies! I must admit that they were a little gooey-er than a regular blondie, but who doesn't like goo? My first blondie creation...a winner! (If only we still had our Browniebabe Contests)
