With a chewy and delicious base, apple filling and sweet streusel topping, you would think there could be no improving on this easy dessert....but, add some caramel sauce and a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you have elevated this scrumptious sweet treat to near perfection!

It's an easy dessert to pull together at the last minute and, with simple, common ingredients, you just might have everything you need, already in your kitchen!

Dutch Apple Pie Bars

1 yellow or butter boxed cake mix
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/3 cup milk or cream
1 can (20 ounces) prepared apple pie filling
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Caramel ice cream sauce (optional)
Vanilla ice cream (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Liberally butter a 7” x 11” baking dish.

In a large bowl, beat together the cake mix, ½ cup butter and milk or cream until well blended, then beat for another 60 seconds.  Spread into bottom of baking dish.

Spread apple pie filling over batter, leaving a ½ inch of batter around the edges.

In a small bowl, mix together melted butter, flour, oats, brown sugar and cinnamon until well blended.  Sprinkle evenly over the apple filling.

Place baking dish on the middle rack and bake for 30 – 35 minutes, or until lightly browned along the edges.

Allow to cool slightly, cut into 8 – 10 pieces and serve drizzled with caramel sauce and ice cream, if desired.
