Caramel Apple Bars.

This delishous recipe comes straight from my mom's kitchen! Perfect for the upcoming season and perfect with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Caramel Apple Bars.
(from mom)

1 egg yolk
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
3/4 cup butter
2 cups flour (I used one all purpose and one whole wheat)

Combine all ingredients. Reserve 1/3 cup. Press the rest into a 9x13 baking dish. Bake for 12 minutes at 350 degrees.

4 apples (peeled, cored, sliced thin)
2 tablespoon flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Toss apples with the flour/sugar/cinnamon mixture. Place on top of cooled crust.

20 caramels
1 tablespoon water

Melt caramel with water. Drizzle over apples. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Bake for about 40 minutes at 350 degrees.

If not eating it warm from the over, heat it in the microwave for 20 seconds and serve with ice cream. Your taste buds will thank you!
