DIRECTIONS

  • Core and peel apples, cut into 1 cm cubes.
  • For the filling, combine apples in a small pot with water, sugar, cinnamon and cornstarch.
  • Set on medium-low heat to soften while you prepare the crust and topping.
  • For the shortbread crust, mix the icing sugar into the butter.
  • Add the flour and stir until smooth and whipped-looking.
  • Spread crust mixture evenly into the bottom on a 9"x9" pan.
  • Once the apples are softened but not mushy, spread on top of the crust.
  • Mix the icing sugar, sugar, and flour of the topping ingredients; stir in the butter until it is crumbly like moist bread crumbs.
  • Take handfuls of the topping and sprinkle over the apples, breaking up big clumps until you can't see apples anymore. You may not use all of the topping.
  • Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned on top; cool completely.
  • Drizzle with caramel ice cream topping in a nice diagonal grid.
  • Cut into 9 pieces.
  • If you want to be really decadent, you could serve it with ice cream.
