What is Halloween without caramel apples? I made these Sunday and the neighbors got some, too. They were gone in a flash (but Brooke kept one out for breakfast) and it smelled grrrr-eat in the morning! I put whipped cram and caramel drizzle over it for dessert. G.O.N.E!
2 1/4 cup flour
1 1/3 cups quick cooking oats
2/3 firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt*I did not use this much*
1/4 tsp nutmeg*the best spice for fall in the woo-oorld*
1 cup cold butter, cut up
5 medium apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 jar of caramel topping
1 c chopped walnuts*I did not use this*
vanilla ice cream, whipping cream or whatever you choose!
Oven to 350 degrees
Dump the flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, baking soda and nutmeg in a large bowl and stir together. Cut in the butter(I used pulse on my food processor, easier in my opinion) into coarse crumbles. Save 1 3/4 cups of this for a crumbly, yummy, topping. Press the rest into the bottom of an ungreased 9x13 pan and bake for 15 minutes. Place the apples evenly over the semi baked crust. Stir together the condensed milk and 1 cup of the caramel topping*taste this...yummilicious* Pour over the apples . If you are using the walnuts add them to the reserved crumble. Crumble the crumble over the apples and bake for 45-50 minutes until apples are tender. Cool and then reheat when you are ready to serve. I think it is best served warm. Add the topping of choice and devour! Enjoy~
