Ok, well it was pretend fall last week- for a few days it was rainy and chilly- like 65! Then it got warm again. I'm not complaining. But to make it seem more like fall, I decided to make some apple bars. I bought these huge organic granny smith apples and decided I wanted to put them in a yummy recipe. I don't really do fruit and desserts that much, especially pie, so I wanted something different. I stumbled upon Two Peas and their Pod's recipe for Salted Caramel Apple Crumb bars and decided to try it out.
The recipe starts out with making a salted caramel sauce, which is pretty easy. I got a little worried once I added the TWELVE TABLESPOONS OF BUTTER that it was too greasy, especially since it's followed by 1 cup of heavy cream, but once the sauce cooled, it was fine. And delicious.
The rest of the recipe is a cinch- two bowls (well, I only used two), no stand mixer, mix, press, pour and bake. Love it.
