Ingredients

Base and Topping

2
cups all-purpose flour
2
cups quick-cooking oats
1 1/2
cups packed brown sugar
1
teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4
cups butter or margarine, melted

Filling

1 1/2
cups caramel ice cream topping
1/2
cup all-purpose flour
2
cups coarsely chopped peeled apples
1/2

Directions

  1. 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 15x10x1-inch pan with shortening. In large bowl with electric mixer, beat base and topping ingredients on low speed until crumbly. Press half of mixture (about 2 1/2 cups) in pan to form base; reserve remaining mixture for topping. Bake 8 minutes.
  2. 2 Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, mix caramel topping and 1/2 cup flour until well blended. Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil 3 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens slightly.
  3. 3 Remove partially baked base from oven. Sprinkle with apples and walnuts. Pour caramel mixture evenly over top. Sprinkle with reserved topping mixture.
  4. 4 Return to oven; bake 20 to 25 minutes longer or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack 30 minutes. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes. Cut into 8 rows by 6 rows.
