We’ve made it over half way through the week ya’ll. And it’s officially fall! That makes me so stoked to say. This crisp weather is giving me LIFE. Anyone else? It’s just the change I needed to kind of “reset my mind”. My days have all been blending together and with the pandemic still happening and in full force, not much change has happened in my day to day schedule. I did however dive into all things fall this past weekend and visited an apple orchard to stock up on some much needed fall essentials. Basically, what that means is apple cider donuts. Yes, I did in fact go for donuts. I mean, of course I got some apples to balance it out, but real talk, I went for donuts.
However, with the apples I did purchase, I have been baking up a storm and have SO many good apple recipes coming up that you guys are going to love. That being said, I thought I would share with you one of my favorite transitional, summer to fall, desserts before I turn into an apple maniac.
Butterscotch, Coconut and Dark Chocolate Blondies. This is another tried and true recipe. I used to make these week after week when I worked as a Pastry Chef and always had to cut a piece off for myself whenever an order went out. Something about having a soft dough with bursts of crunchy chocolate chips is so satisfying to me. Add butterscotch and coconut, and it’s a real textural dream.
