Apple Crisp and Easy Caramel Apple Bars

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.

Apple Crisp

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 egg
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.
