Sugar cookies in a thick and delicious bar!
Lots of apples and cinnamon make these bars the perfect fall treat!
Each major holiday comes with a “to do” list. I’m not talking about shopping or decorating, but more of an itinerary of things we need to do as a family. When the start of school rolls around, I start planning our fall activities. The season will NOT be complete for me unless we find time to do all the fun things autumn has to offer. Since our kids have been babies, we’ve gone to the zoo, we’ve done hayrides, we’ve picked and carved pumpkins, we’ve done corn mazes and made all sorts of Halloween treats. These are the reason I absolutely love the fall. There is so much to do, the weather is cool and crisp and I love the autumn colors we find everywhere we look.
Our oldest is almost 10. She still enjoys most of our fall festivities. She’s a good big sister and will enjoy them for the sake of my 4 year old for as long as possible. In the back of my mind, I am aware that our lives are changing. We do so much together as a family. All the activities listed above hold so many special family memories. I know it’s only a matter of time before one of them asks to bring a friend, and then the whole dynamic of that outing will change. The next thing that will happen is one will ask to stay back with a friend and before we know it, we won’t be going at all. I’m dreading that day.
The one thing that we will always have is the flavors of fall. Each September our kitchen starts filling up with the spiced aromas that only the flavors of autumn can bring. Our senses are filled with the scent of apples, cinnamon, ginger, pumpkin, maple and nutmeg. Our kids love eating pumpkin cupcakes and chili, cinnamon bread and gingerbread cookies. And I’m confident they always will. I suppose no matter what each season brings, we always have food to bring us together.
These apple cinnamon sugar cookie bars were the perfect recipe to get us in the mood for fall! Each bite is loaded with cinnamon and fresh chunks of apples. I frosted them with a simple browned butter frosting. The combination left us anxious for fall and the bounty it has to offer!
