Caramel Apple Streusel Bars

Yum, yum! I made these after Sunday dinner yesterday and they are SO good! Half the pan is gone, and I don't have much hope for the lifespan of the rest. Seriously good dessert.

Caramel Apple Streusel Bars- 12 servings
1 8 oz. can crescent rolls
3 c. peeled and chopped cooking apples
1/2 c. caramel topping
1/4 c. flour
3/4 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. quick cooking oats
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 c. butter or margarine, softened
Heat oven to 375. Spray a 13x9 in pan with non-stick cooking spray. Unroll dough, pinch seams to seal and press into bottom and 1/2 inch up sides of pan.
 Sprinkle apples over dough.
In a 1 qt, saucepan, heat caramel topping and 1/4 c. flour to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly, until thickened.
 Drizzle over apples. But don't get any on your self, because it will burn to China.
In a medium bowl, mix brown sugar, flour, oats and cinnamon. With a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture looks like fine crumbs.
Sprinkle over apples.  
 Bake for 18-20 minutes or until top is golden brown and apples are tender. MMMMmmm.
