24 Jul

we had some pears laying around – it didnt look like anyone was going to eat them.   so i used them 🙂   these bars were really good!  next time i’ll put in more pears.  i used tj’s fleur de sel caramel that i had in the fridge – there was maybe 3/4 of a jar in there.  next time a whole jar is going in 🙂

Caramel Pear Bars
(adapted from momtaughtus)

2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups oatmeal
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
3/4 cup butter (melted)
1 jar of tj’s fleur de sel caramel sauce
5-6 medium pears (sliced thin – peeled or unpeeled)

Combine flour, oatmeal, brown sugar, and cinnamon.  Stir in melted butter – mixture will be someone crumbly.  Set aside 1 1/2 cups to use as topping.  Press the remaining mixture into an ungreased 9×12 baking dish.  Place pear slices on top of crust.  Drizzle caramel sauce over the top of pears.  Sprinkle with reserved mixture.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-35 minutes.  Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes.
