I had bought a bunch of granny smith apples at Costco because Logan now likes apples. There were so many that I decided to do a little experiment with them. I also bought several bags of the caramel bits at Wal-Mart because I liked them so much in the cookies we made and I didn’t know if they would end up being a seasonal item.
We had this for dessert the night of the split pea soup. It turned out so yummy! Logan really liked the crust. Shhhhh don’t tell anyone…Madeline and I had leftovers for breakfast after Logan went to school! Caramel Apple Crunch
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9×13 inch baking pan. Combine flour through salt. Stir to combine. Cut in butter using two butter knives of a pastery blender. Mixture should be crumbly. Stir in beaten eggs. Peel, core, and slice apples. Place half of apples in prepared pan. Top with half of caramel bits. Add remaining apples and then remaining caramels. Top with crust mixture. Bake uncovered for 40 minutes, or until apples are tender and crust is crisp and browned. Let sit 5-10 minutes before serving.
