I'm not really sure how to rate these. My husband thought that they were okay and honestly he was a little disappointed. I did like them they reminded me of an apple crisp with carmel. However prep was ridiculously long due to the caramels. I would recommend buying a caramel sundae sauce and just drizzeling it over the apples it would make the process a lot easier.
Delicious and moist! Substituted caramel ice cream topping for unwrapped caramels and had no problem getting topping evenly over apples. I heated the topping in the microwave to make the consistency a little thinner which made it easier to pour.
These were quite good, but they do fall apart a bit when you try to cut them while still warm as the recipe suggests. I melted the caramels on the stovetop in a non-stick saucepan with a tablespoon or two of water added and they came out smooth. Rather than try to "spread" the caramel, I just drizzled it over the top of the apples with a spoon and it worked out fine. The prep time for this is quite a bit longer than 15 minutes though....I'd say at least 30 minutes; baking time is accurate. Be sure to use real butter in the crust...it DOES make a big difference in the taste. We liked these better chilled than fresh out of the oven. Quite addicting though...my husband keeps asking for them. Thanks!!
I'd like to preface this by apologizing for this review. I was very disappointed. I followed the recipe verbatim. The chopped apples (I used Granny Smith) were mushy. The flavor was not outstanding. I read such rave reviews I had to try this. I do not consider myself a gourmet but would not feel comfortable serving this at a pot luck or bringing it to a church function. The topping was not appealing to the eye as well. I verified the recipe steps ingred. measurements and feel that this review is merited. Sorry...
I'm not sure about the no fuss issue but these are good. Now how to get the bottom crust to be as crisp as the top. These are best eaten warm...oooh that top crust/crumbles. If I make this again I'll use caramel sauce as others suggested I used stale/hard caramels that I had in my pantry from x-mas & melted with some butter flavored shortening it was somewhat a pain. Thanks Hot Pam.
