Contributed By: Terry Borden


2 cups flour
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
� tsp. ground nutmeg
� tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
2 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup butter or alternative
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 peeled and finely chopped apples (Granny Smith)
1 cup chopped pecans
1 � cups caramel bits


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9� x 13� baking dish and set aside. Place all of the dry ingredients except the apples, pecans, and caramel bits, in a bowl and premix until well combined.
Now, place the butter/alternative and brown sugar in your stand mixer bowl and cream on low speed. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add the premixed dry ingredients slowly until well incorporated. Increase the mixer speed to high and continue to mix for an additional minute.
Next, add the chopped apples and pecans and mix slowly on low speed until completely incorporated. Remove the bowl from the mixer stand and pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Level with a spatula and sprinkle with the caramel bits. Bake for 35 minutes or until an inserted tooth pick pulls out clean. Remove the brownies from the oven and cool on a rack.
Cut into generous squares and serve with vanilla ice cream or whip cream. Garnish with ground cinnamon or cinnamon sticks and enjoy.
