Makes: 36 bars Total Time: 50 min
Category: Cookies Sub Category: Bars

what you need
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 1/2 cups coarsely chopped peeled tart apples (3 medium)
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 bag (14 ounces) caramels
make it
1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Mix brown sugar, butter and shortening in large bowl. Stir in 1 3/4 cups flour, the oats, salt and baking soda. Reserve 2 cups oat mixture; press remaining oat mixture in ungreased rectangular pan, 13x9x2 inches.

2. Toss apples and 3 tablespoons flour; spread over mixture in pan. Heat caramels over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted; pour evenly over apples. Sprinkle with reserved oat mixture; press lightly.

3. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until topping is golden brown and apples are tender. For 36 bars, cut into 6 rows by 6 rows while warm. Store covered in refrigerator.
Notes
Recommendation on apples: Honeycrisp are the best.

Variation
Make a date with Date Bars: Heat 1 pound cut-up dates (3 cups), 1 1/2 cups water and 1/4 cup sugar over low heat about 10 minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened; cool. Use date mixture instead of the apples, 3 tablespoons flour and caramels.
