CARAMEL APPLE PIE BARS
Don't feel like rolling dough for an apple pie? No worries......this is right up there with apple pie!!
Caramel Apple Pie Bars
1 stick (4 ounces) butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 cup flour (I used Cup4Cup GF flour)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 large apples, peeled and chopped into small bite-sized chunks
2 ounces caramel bits (or 10 kraft caramels) microwaved in a bowl with 1 Tablespoon heavy cream.
Preheat oven to 350º. Line 8 x 8 inch pan with nonstick foil.
Cream butter and sugars. Add egg. Add dry ingredients. Stir in apples. Pour half in pan and add caramel layer. Top with rest of batter and spread the best you can, I swirled some of it.
Spread into prepared pan and bake for about 25-30 minutes.
