Filling:

1/3 cup chopped, unpeeled apple
1/3 cup evaporated milk
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup chopped walnuts

Dough:

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar

Topping:

1-14-oz. package caramels

In small saucepan, combine filling ingredients. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened; set aside to cool.

In a bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add egg, vanilla and salt; beat well. Add flour; mix well.
