It is always fun trying out new recipes and ideas for our ever popular cookie / dessert table – apart form the fact I simply love baking!  Today whilst sorting out some of my Mums old recipes cards I found this one that sounded rather tempting for Caramel Apple Squares. I have to say it is rather delicious, so please give it a try. It will certainly be featuring on our wedding dessert/cookie tables later this year.

Caramel Apple Shortcake:

Filling: 175g Plain Flour; ½ tspoon salt; 75g Margarine / butter;  75g Brown Sugar

Topping:  2 tablespoons Caramel Fudge Sauce;  2 Cooking Apples;  1 tspoon Cinnamon.

1.) Prepare a hot oven 195 degrees – Fan

2.) Sift flour & salt into a bowl.

3.) Rub in marg/butter until the mixture resembles bread crumbs.

4.) Stir in brown sugar.

5.) Spread over a shallow square tin (15cm Square)

6.) Peel, core and slice the apples place in a pan with caramel fudge sauce and heat until just warm, remove from the heat and arrange over the mixture in the tin.

8.) Place in the oven and bake for 30 mins.

This dessert can be eaten hot or cold, it is delicious served warm with a heaped spoonful of vanilla ice cream.
