Salted Caramel Apple Pie Bars #dessert #cake

Crusty fruit-filled treat is my preferred sweet, however preparing this exemplary pastry as bars is so a lot simpler!

Cheerful fourth of July weekend! It's formally been one year since I posted my most loved sweet on earth. In the event that I had each and every pastry on my blog on the table before me (would you be able to envision?! greedy.) and could just pick one… this treat would win. By a surprising margin.

Crusty fruit-filled treat is my preferred pastry; it's likewise an American great. Furthermore, to praise our nation's freedom, I promise to make a crusty fruit-filled treat formula on the fourth of July consistently. Another custom to commend this enthusiastic occasion. What's more, my reason to eat crusty fruit-filled treat things.

I have an admission. I made and shot these salted caramel crusty fruit-filled treat bars 2 weeks prior and have made them 3 additional occasions since. They are THAT great. Envision a cut of crusty fruit-filled treat, yet better. A rich shortbread hull. A dark colored sugary oat streusel. Gooey cinnamon apples. What's more, satiny salted caramel.

Coincidentally, I didn't eat every one of the three bunches. In spite of the fact that in the wake of running 7 miles one day, I certainly needed to. One clump was a hit at a book marking, another group went to Kevin's companions, and I solidified the third bunch for a gathering tomorrow.

Shortbread Crust
  • 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (125g) all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)

Apple Filling

  • 2 large apples, peeled and thinly sliced (1/4 inch thick)1
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg


  • 1/2 cup (40g) old-fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup (70g) packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup (30g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup (60g) unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • homemade salted caramel sauce (step-by-step photos included)

Directions :

  1. Preheat the oven to 300°F (149°C). Line the bottom and sides of an 8-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper, leaving enough overhang on all sides. Set aside.
  2. Make the crust: Stir the melted butter, granulated sugar, vanilla, and salt together in a medium bowl. Add the flour and stir until everything is combined. Press the mixture evenly into the prepared baking pan. Bake for 15 minutes while you prepare the filling and streusel.
  3. Make the apple filling: Combine the sliced apples, flour, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a large bowl until all of the apples are evenly coated. Set aside.
  4. Make the streusel: Whisk the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and flour together in a medium bowl. Cut in the chilled butter with a pastry blender or two forks (or even with your hands) until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.
  5. Remove the crust from the oven, and turn the oven up to 350°F (177°C). Evenly layer the apples on top of the warm crust. It will look like there are too many apple slices, so layer them tightly and press them down to fit. Sprinkle the apple layer with streusel and bake for 30–35 minutes or until the streusel is golden brown.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for at least 20 minutes at room temperature, then chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours (or overnight). Lift the foil or parchment out of the pan using the overhang on the sides and cut into bars. I usually cut them into 16 smaller bars, but you can cut them into 12 larger bars. Once cut, drizzle some salted caramel sauce on top of each. These apple pie bars can be enjoyed warm, at room temperature, or even cold.
