Caramel Apple Oat Squares
1 ¾ cups flour
1 cup quick oats
½ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup butter
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 jar Mrs. Richardson’s Butterscotch Caramel sauce
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
3 – 4 cups thin sliced baking apples
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour, oats, sugar, baking soda and salt: cut in butter until crumbly. Reserving 1 ½ cups crumb mixture, press remainder on bottom of greased 9 x 13 pan. Bake 10 minutes. Add nuts to reserved crumb mixture, set aside. Mix butterscotch caramel sauce and sweetened condensed milk together. Layer apples over baked crust; top with caramel mixture, then reserved crumb mixture. Bake 30 – 40 minutes until set. Cool. Serve warm with ice cream if desired.
These are scrumptious, don’t plan on eating just one square if you make these!
