Oops, my bad!

I don't remember when exactly but a week or so ago I saw DSC00570on the Recipe Girl's blog these drool-licious photos of Dulce de Leche Apple Bars with Browned Butter Icing!  Now what out of that name doesn't sound yummy?!  No brainer, right?! 
While I like apples I prefer them raw.  I won't turn down a slice of apple pie but it does head the top of my "to make" list so you can imagine how good these looked.  What drew me in was the browned butter icing dripping down slices of her bars and the swirled in dulce de leche.  I had never had dulce de leche before and thought what better way to try it!  Now if you've followed my link and hopped over to check out her photos you might notice a bit of a difference.  I followed her recipe and everything went well until the buzzer dinged and I pulled them out TOO SOON.  I kinda knew it too, but it was 11:30, I had just finished wiping down Devon's pads and helmet, we had to be out the door by 8:20 the next morning, and  I was just so tired!  I figured they would just be on the "moist" side.  Oops, they were moist all right.  Too moist! I salvaged all the pieces along the edge and tossed the undercooked middle over some ice cream.  DSC00557(YUM!)  Because the bars were so moist I passed on the icing (bummer) and instead just sprinkled a little powdered sugar over them .  The bars were very good and my children  liked them.  Babygirl wasn't fond of the apple chunks in them (didn't stop her from having 2 pieces) but she LOVED the dulce de leche.  As a matter of fact we ALL loved the dulce de leche!  Would I make these again, YES, but with just one basic change, outside of baking them the right length of time, I would leave out the apples and called them Recipe Girl's Dulce de Leche Blondies!
