OK, technically, “Apple Brownies” are not brownies at all.
For one thing, there’s no chocolate in them.
But there are plenty of apples in a tender crumb that is suffused with cinnamon.
Plus, just like the best brownies, these bake up with an irresistible crackly texture on top. So much so, that just like brownies, you will be grabbing for the corner pieces first just to get as much of the sugary, crisp edges as you can.
