apple cider blondies

If you love apple cider donuts, you have to try these apple cider blondies! Rich cider, nutty brown butter, and warm spices flavor these chewy bars.

Brown butter in a heavy-bottomed pan, swirling often, until deeply golden and nutty. Pour into a large bowl. 


Pour cider into the same pan. Simmer over medium-high heat until reduced to 1/2 cup – about 35 minutes. Add to brown butter and cool to room temperature.


Whisk together granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon of apple pie spice. Set aside. 


Whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, and remaining apple pie spice. Set aside.


Add brown sugar to the cider/brown butter mixture. Then add eggs and vanilla. 


Fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients until just combined.


Spread batter into a lined 9x13-inch pan. Smooth the top and sprinkle with the spiced sugar mixture. 


Bake for about 35-40 minutes. Let cool for 1 hour in the pan before slicing and enjoying.
