Yesterday I shared this post about a trip to the apple orchard. While the girls were doing their own apple picking, I was picking a few Jonathan apples to purchase for some yummy fall baking. These recipes are from a Betty Crocker website, and they are great recipes to have on hand for such an occasion as apple picking.
4 medium tart cooking apples, sliced (4 cups)
¾ cup packed brown sugar
½ cu all-purpose flour
½ cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¾ teaspoon ground nutmeg
Grease 9 inch pan and spread apples in pan. In a separate bowl, mix remaining ingredients then sprinkle over apples. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla icecream on top.
Easy Caramel Apple Bars
1/2 cup cold butter
1 pouch oatmeal cookie mix
1 cup finely chopped peeled apple (I used 2 cups)
¾ cup caramel topping ( I used one bag of caramel sqares instead)
¼ cup all-purpose flour (I didn’t use flour)
Cut butter into cookie mix and mix in egg. Reserve 1 ½ cups of mixture. Press remaining mixture into greased 9x13 inch pan. Bake for 15 minutes. Sprinkle apples on top of mixture. Add caramel. Add remaining mixture. Bake for 20-25minutes. Cool completely before serving.
