Caramel Apple Oatmeal Squares

I collect recipes, create recipes and post recipes that are from my family's collections. Here's another great family recipe from Aunt Faye. It's a great Fall dessert.

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
1 - 9"X 13" baking pan, un greased

Caramel Apple Oatmeal Squares:

1 C Brown Sugar
1/2 C Butter, softened
1/4 C Crisco
1 3/4 C + 3 TBS Flour, divided
1 1/2 C Quick Cook Oats
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
4 1/2 C peeled, cored and coarsely chopped Apples
1 - (14oz.) bag of Caramel Squares
1/2 C Chopped Pecans

In a Stand Mixer with a paddle attachment:
Brown Sugar
Beat 3 minutes.
1 3/4 C Flour
Baking Soda
Beat until well combines.
Reserve 1 C and set aside.
Press remaining into the pan.

In a small bowl:
3 TBS Flour
Toss well to coat the Apples.
Distribute Apples evenly in the pan.

Melt the Caramels in a saucepan on low heat until melted and smooth. (or you can melt the Caramels in a microwave (in a glass bowl or Pyrex measuring cup) , stirring often until creamy smooth. Watch it carefully so it doesn't burn.
Pour over the Apples.

Sprinkle with reserved Oats and press lightly into the caramel.
Sprinkle evenly with Pecans.
Bake for 25 - 30 minutes.
Remove pan to a rack and cool completely before cutting into squares.

Peace in the Kitchen!
