Bowden Blondies with caramel, apples & Walnuts

Mrs. Bowden


Took a couple of blondie (brownies minus the chocolate) recipes I came across, and made them mine. My guy's love these, and decided to post to keep track of the recipe while our home is being painted. I hope you love them as much as we have! One day soon I think we'll do a sweet potato, or pumpkin version! :D
