Meet the Sullivans: Apple-Butterscotch Brownies

Apple-Butterscotch Brownies

This brownie recipe is from Southern Living's September 2011 issue. When I saw all the apple recipes in this issue I had to make one. This is the first "Fall" recipe I've made this season. I brought them to work on Tuesday and everyone loved them.

1 cup chopped pecans
2 cups firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 cup butter, melted
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups peeled and diced Granny Smith apples (about 1 1/2 lb.)

  1. Preheat oven to 350º. Bake pecans in a single layer in a shallow pan 8 to 10 minutes or until toasted and fragrant, stirring halfway through.
  2. Stir together brown sugar and next 3 ingredients.
  3. Stir together flour and next 2 ingredients; add to brown sugar mixture, and stir until blended. Stir in apples and pecans. Pour mixture into a greased and floured 13- x 9-inch pan; spread in an even layer.
  4. Bake at 350º for 35 to 45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely (about 1 hour). Cut into bars.

Tonight I'm making this! I'm so excited I can't wait!
