Caramel Apple Streusel Squares

It’s that time of year again where the oven and mixers start working overtime to help you prepare all the sweet treats your heart desires. Since we are celebrating Christmas early with some of our extended family, I decided to get in the kitchen and whip up some Caramel Apple Streusel Squares.

Caramel Apple Streusel Squares

The aroma that filled the house as the Caramel Apple Streusel Squares were baking away in the oven was absolutely delightful.  I mean, who doesn’t love the smell of cinnamon and nutmeg??  I was feeling a little overwhelmed at the amount of time it took during preparation, but the aroma that filled my house was worth all the effort.

Coring, peeling and slicing the apples was a bit of a chore and took me quite a while, but it was all worth it when this beauty came out of the oven.  I let it sit to cool down a bit, and the whole time I watched as my children would slowly walk by to see if it had cooled down enough.  When I thought it was firm enough that I could actually cut into it, I cut it into squares and paired it with some good ‘ole vanilla ice cream.

The vote was unanimous.  It was a hit all the way around!
