These bars scream AUTUMN! Cheesecake, apples, crumble topping AND caramel, oh my word… I brought a few test batches into the office and the reactions were priceless. Not much talking, a lot of oohs and ahhs, and the eye opening gesture that I love. I know that was my reaction because I love all of those things too. It’s actually the only thing I do love about the fall season.
Yeah, the colours on the trees may be pretty to most people, but to me it means winter is coming, and the colours represent my summer dying a slow death. The only thing that gets me through the fall days is apples, and caramels, and knowing Thanksgiving is coming soon (which is my favourite holiday for eating above all) So until Old Man Winter shows up and ruins everything, I am going to eat as many apples as I can, and cover as much of those apples with caramel as I can… and who the hell is going to say no to cheesecake joining that party!
There are a few steps to this recipe, and I remember the first time I made it, it felt like it took me forever! The second and third time I breezed through it. So don’t be intimidated, just tackle each section at a time. The end result is worth the TLC.
