Seriously? Is there anything better than caramel, apples and condensed milk, add in oatmeal and you get a Y.U.M.!! This is a wonderful 'fall type' recipe. I got it from a friend, Karyn Felt, and she passed it on from here. I added an extra can of apple pie filling and I am going to try to use my homemade apple filling next time. But is is so easy and soooo good that I don't know if I want to mess with it. I topped it with vanilla bean ice cream. Thanks Karyn, for sharing, this is definitely a keeper.
1 3/4 cup unsifted flour
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup. brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

Reserving 1 1/2 cups crumb mixture, press remainder on bottom of 9x13 inch pan. Bake 15 minutes. Add walnuts to reserved mixture. In heavy saucepan, over low heat, melt caramels with Eagle Brand milk, stirring until smooth. Spoon apple pie filling over crust, top with caramel mixture and reserved crumb mixture.
