My apple obsession doesn’t stop with just pies, cookies and bread. Nope. There is always plenty of apple love to go around.

When I teamed up with Walkers Shortbread to bring you a fun post, I knew I had to put a fun seasonal twist on things and try something I hadn’t done yet. Why not pair my love for apples with a classic cookie?!

This is basically a deconstructed apple pie. All of the flavor without the fuss!

Layers of sweet caramel, homemade whipped cream, apple pie filling and Walkers shortbread crumbs. The perfect bite every time!

I love baking with brands I trust. Did you know that Walkers Pure Butter Shortbread is made from only four simple ingredients; butter, flour, salt and sugar? No preservatives! And of those four ingredients, their butter comes from free range grass fed dairy cows that are never given growth hormones or antibiotics! A classic cookie with ingredients you can trust.

Combine Walkers Shortbread with the classic taste of Fall and you have yourself an essential dessert. Be sure to make extra, as they’ll disappear before your eyes!

Add these caramel apple shortbread parfaits to your Fall baking plans!
