If you've been asked to bring a dessert dish this year, we've got a little something that might make you the star of Thanksgiving this year.

Thanksgiving wouldn't be Thanksgiving with pumpkin pie and even pecan pie but what about switching things up a little and instead of making pumpkin the star of the show, why not highlight apples?

There's just something about the taste of an apple. Not saying that there's anything wrong with pumpkin treats, but we're betting the people at your Thanksgiving dinner table who aren't crazy about pumpkin will happily dive right in to your apple dessert.

Shane Co wanted to find out exactly what apple desserts were the most favored in each states. If you were taking an apple dessert to Thanksgiving dinner in the South, you would probably be taking candied apples because those are big in that region.

If you were taking an apple dessert to dinner in the West, you might be whipping up an apple strudel a if you were in the Midwest, you probably wouldn't be taking an apple dessert to dinner. Instead, you'd be slicing up apples to serve in Thanksgiving morning oatmeal.

Here in the Northeast, in New York more specifically, the favorite apple dessert isn't apple pie or apple cheesecake. No, the favorite apple dessert in New York is apple blondies.

A blondie is like a brownie. A blondie looks a lot like a brownie but it substitutes vanilla in place of cocoa, and contains brown sugar and if you want to make an apple blondie for Thanksgiving, yours will also include apple.

We've not heard of a lot of people serving apple blondies for dessert at Thanksgiving but maybe we're just eating at the wrong places. Shane Co says they pulled their data from Google analytics which they monitored for a year, breaking down which areas each search was most popular in to come to their conclusion.

We haven't tried this recipe ourselves, but those who have give it a five star review.
