Do you ever dream about creating the perfect dessert? Well, I did, and that’s how I came up with these amazing Caramel-y Apple Pie Bars! They’re a mouthwatering American classic that will have your taste buds dancing with joy.
In my dream, I combined juicy apples, creamy caramel, and crunchy walnuts to create the perfect dessert. And when I woke up, I couldn’t resist trying to make it a reality.
To whip up these bars, you’ll need some all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, butter, brown sugar, an egg, vanilla extract, diced apples, caramel sauce, and chopped walnuts.
Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. In a larger bowl, beat together the butter and brown sugar until smooth. Then add the egg and vanilla extract and beat again. Gradually stir in the flour mixture until everything is just blended.
Now, spread half of the dough into the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking pan. Add a layer of diced apples on top, followed by a drizzle of caramel sauce and a sprinkle of chopped walnuts. Drop spoonfuls of the remaining dough over the top.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Afterward, let the bars cool down before slicing and savoring.
These Caramel-y Apple Pie Bars are an absolute delight. The combination of sweet and tart flavors, plus the crunchy texture of the walnuts, makes for a truly satisfying dessert. And the best part? You don’t need to be a master baker to make them! So, why not try dreaming up your own dessert creation? You never know what delicious recipes you might come up with!
