This is one of those recipes that I took with me to college. I started making these apple brownies back in high school. And have made them once a year or so since. I have no idea where the recipe originated, since it's written on an index card and is over 20 years old.
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup finely chopped Granny Smith apple
Frosting (see below)
Cream shortening, gradually adding sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Combine flour, salt, soda and cinnamon. Add to creamed mixture. Fold in apples. Pour in 9 x 13 pan. Bake at 350* for 25 minutes. Remove and spread with frosting when slightly warm.
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup pecans (we omit these)
Cream butter and cream cheese, gradually add sugar; beat until light and fluffy. Stir in vanilla and pecans.
Even though it isn't apple season right now, these brownies hit the spot year-round. Enjoy!
This sounds like a nice moist brownie that will have a fresh taste.
dat is wel mijn ogen uitsteken.......het water loopt uit mijn mond.
Oh Thank you they are going to be delicious no doubt. Hug B
Yes please, I'll have some! :D
Sounds real good, I think I may have tried these with some raisins.
Yummy... thanks for this recipe!
I did a screenshot of this recipe....am going to try it soon. It looks and sounds delicious!!
Oh goodness, that looks and sounds amazing! Thank you for sharing, Lisa. :)
Sounds delicious to me. Recipes on old index cards are usually the best because they're tried and true. :)
Sounds yummy. Bet my grands would like them. I'm copying the recipe. Thanks!
So different....they sound delicious!
How does your husband stave off obesity? If I had good things like that, comfort food to go with coffee, I'd be the 500 pound guy they had to bury in a piano box.
These look so moist! I love anything with cream cheese frosting. I don't think I could hold myself to just one recipe of them a year. :-)
Awesome! My only question is...why do you only make them once a year?
Sounds yummy! I have a couple recipes like that from college too. They are always delicious and should be made more often :)
Sometimes, the best recipes are the ones we had when we were young... My Mom used to make the best Prune Cake in the world --and I have never had one as good ANYWHERE since....
Your apple brownies with cream cheese icing sounds delicious. Believe I'd make it more than once a year... ha
I'm not much for apples, but that cream cheese frosting I could eat all by itself!
What time is dinner? :-}
They sounds so GOOD!
I'll have to give that a try! It looks and sounds really good!
ohhh yum yum yum!
They look so good and seems to be delicious!
I have never heard of apple brownies and will have to try them, they look delicious.
These sound DELICIOUS! I like all apple desserts!
These sounds really delicious!
I think I would eat cream cheese frosting on top of pretty much any baked item. It's just so darned yummy.
