  • 3 cups crisp apples (like Cortland, Red Delicious, or Fuji), peeled and chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 cup carmael candy corn
  • 2 cups flour

  • 3 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. allspice
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the sides and bottom of a 9x9 inch glass dish with cooking spray. Don't be stingy!
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar, beat in eggs.
  3. Add remaining ingredients except for apples and caramels, stir until just combined.
  4. Fold in apples and caramels.
  5. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 1 hour and 10 - 20 minutes, or until top is golden brown and crusty and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Allow to cool completely in the pan before running a knife around the edges and tipping out.
  7. Slice into squares and serve upside down, so caramel drips over the sides.
