Caramel Apple Oat Squares

1 34 cups flour
1 cup quick-cooking oats
12 cup firmly packed brown sugar
12 teaspoon baking soda
12 teaspoon salt
1 cup cold butter
1 cup chopped walnuts
20 caramels, unwrapped
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk (NOT evaporated milk)
1 (21 ounce) can apple pie filling


Preheat oven to 350. In large bowl combine flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter until crumbly. Reserving 1 1/2 c crumb mixture, press remainder on bottom of 9x13 pan. Bake 15 minutes. Add nuts to reserved crumb mixture. In heavy saucepan over low heat, melt caramels with condensed milk stirring until smooth (I use Eagle Brand and I use a double boiler to melt). Spoon apple filling over prepared crust. Top with melted caramel mixture then reserved crumb mixture. Bake 20 minutes or until set. Cool thoroughly. Serve with French Vanilla Cool Whip or ice cream as you desire.
