I’m gonna admit, this feels weird.


But over the last year I feel like I’ve done a better job of accepting the fact that for me, now, holidays start at least a month in advance. Thanksgiving and Christmas?? 2+ months in advance!

But let’s be real, Canadian Thanksgiving is just over a month away, so I’m going to call this perfect holiday planning timing.

American friends, you can just continue thinking that I am really, impressively, on the ball.

It also feels weird because, well, I mostly bake pumpkin treats for the hubs. If I had to pick between pumpkin and apple?? Apple wins every time.

So I went a little milder on the pumpkin in this recipe, and mixed in some great coffee, cinnamon and brown sugar flavors to balance things out. I totally loved them! They are such a great fall treat!

I wanted to go with a variation of the frosting from these Brown Sugar Pecan Cookies that were SUCH a big hit, because it is just fantastic. I also love having a frosting that sets up nice and firm, so that you can stack them and transport them easily. Perfect for holiday potlucks!

So I want to know: if you guys have to choose between apple and pumpkin in the fall, which one are you going for?

  • Spread into prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Set aside to cool.

  • Pour over cooled blondies and allow to cool until glaze is completely set before slicing. Store at room temperature, in the refrigerator or freezer!

    Oh wow, that coffee spice glaze sounds incredible! I’m not sure if I like pumpkin or apple better. I feel like apple is more acceptable throughout the whole year, so when fall comes around I just need to EAT ALL THE PUMPKIN! 😛

  2. Sandra Kuehn says

    I have tried a few of recipes and love them I agree with you I would choose Apples over pumpkins but these could change my mind .

  3. Rachel @the dessert chronicles says

    I love the ideas of these blondies! Pumpkin spice lattes are the best part of Fall. Can’t wait to give these a try!

  4. Medha @ Whisk & Shout says

    These are such perfect little squares of pumpkin goodness! My experience with baking with pumpkin is kinda the opposite- I love it and my family HATES it, so I just end up eating everything I bake. Not the biggest of issues 🙂 Pinning!
