Tender, buttery shortbread doused in rich salted caramel, covered in tart Granny Smith apple slices, and dotted with crumbled shortbread. Now that’s what we call Prize-Winning Salted Caramel Apple Pie Bars! Ladies and gents, get your stretchy pants out for this one.
You may remember the time we submitted our Salted Caramel Apple Pie Bars recipe to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Apple Dessert & Pie Contest. You may also remember the time we won said bake off! Now it’s time we share our award-winning recipe with you.
These Salted Caramel Apple Pie Bars are over the top both in flavor and texture. We’re talking buttery crust, firm apple slices cut by tangy lemon juice and sweetened with gooey salted caramel, and crunchy shortbread crumbles. The bars are sticky and chewy, yet worth every bit of the mess (not to mention the calories).
