1/4 cup flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 TBSP butter, softened
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

6 cups apples, peeled & sliced
1 TBSP lemon juice

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 lb. Marie's Milk Chocolate Caramels, chopped
1 9-inch pie shell


Directions:
Combine the first four ingredients in an 8X8 inch ungreased pan and bake at 400 degrees for 6-8 minutes until golden brown. Cool and crumble.
