Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 300º. Line an 8 x 8 baking pan with non-stick foil (or line with foil and spray with non-stick baking spray).Set aside.
  2. Stir the melted butter, 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.
  3. While crust is baking, combine the sliced apples, flour, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg and gently toss to combine. Set aside.
  4. In another bowl mix the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and flour together.Cut in the chilled butter with a pastry blender or your hands,until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.
  5. Remove the crust from the oven, and increase the oven temperature to 350º. Evenly layer the apples on top of the warm crust (I made 4 rows of overlapping apple slices). Crumble to the streusel topping over the apples. Bake for 30–35 minutes or until the streusel is lightly browned and apples are tender.
  6. Let cool at room temperature for about a half hour, then chill for 2 hours. Before serving, remove bars from pan using the foil and cut into 16 bars. Drizzle with caramel before serving.
