Apple Butterscotch Blondies are perfect for a fall day. It is a very simple recipe with a wonderful butterscotch flavor, thanks to the dark brown sugar. Using fresh apples ensures that these little guys will definitely be moist, especially if you sit them out overnight. I found a dusting of confectioners sugar to be a simple and perfect topping, that is if just have to have one.
