These soft, extremely flavorful spiced apple pecan blondies are such a treat. The apples are roasted with brown sugar and spices to intensify their flavor, then mixed into a brown butter pecan batter, and baked into bars. They’re topped with an apple syrup glaze and a little flaky sea salt for a sweet & salty touch. You can serve them as a holiday dessert or even as a special Thanksgiving breakfast.

Roasted Carrots & Parsnips with Sweet Apple Glaze and Whipped Goat Cheese
I love roasting vegetables. There’s something about the slight caramelization combined with the perfect amount of seasoning that is irresistible. Another plus: it’s really easy.
