    Caramel Apple Bars
    From Reiman Boards

    These bars make a great fall dessert. We like to warm individual servings in the microwave and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It quickly became a family favorite. Maybe it'll become one of your family's, too.

    SERVINGS: 15-20

    CATEGORY: Dessert

    METHOD: Baked

    TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min.

    1/2 cup butter
    1/4 cup shortening
    1 cup packed brown sugar
    1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1 cup old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional
    4-1/2 cups coarsely chopped peeled baking apples
    3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1 package (14 ounces) caramels
    3 tablespoons butter
    In a mixing bowl, cream butter, shortening and brown sugar until fluffy. Add flour, oats, salt and baking soda; mix well. Stir in pecans if desired. Set aside 2 cups. Press remaining oat mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan.
    For filling, toss apples with flour; spoon over the crust. In a saucepan, melt the caramels and butter over low heat; drizzle over apples. Top with the reserved oat mixture.
    Bake at 400 for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool before cutting into bars. Yield: 15-20 servings.

    Thought for the day: Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or play with it, pee on it and walk away!
