Apple Desserts Starting With…

1. Cinnamon Apple Pie Cake @ Recipe Girl

Is it a pie?  Is it a cake?  Make up your mind, RecipeGirl!  It was tough for me to decide, really.  In this recipe, a cake batter is poured in and around the apples to hold it all together in the consistency of a cake, but there are so many apples involved that it can officially pass for a pie too.  So here you go:  Cinnamon Apple Pie Cake

2. Old-Fashioned Apple Crisp @ Barefeet In the Kitchen

Warm slices of baked apples covered with cinnamon brown sugar streusel topping are all that’s required to make this old fashioned apple crisp. It’s a warm apple dessert spiced with cinnamon and slightly sweetened but I don’t love eating the soupy dish that sometimes masquerades as an “apple crisp.” This fruit-filled dessert recipe is not at all soupy, with soft apples covered with just enough crunchy topping to make it perfect.

11. Caramel Apple Blondies @ Sprinkle Some Sugar

Caramel Apple Blondies! Holy delicious. Apples and caramel are just a flavor combo that are meant to be paired together. Especially in a gooey blondie! The caramel bits melt into the bars slightly making them ultra gooey, ultra caramel-y and ultra chewy. The apples also soften to add to the chewy factor and add so much amazing flavor. Obviously my favorite part is the brown sugar glaze on top.
