  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat like Silpat. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together sugar, flour and baking powder.
  4. Add butter and cut in with a pastry cutter.
  5. In a small mixing bowl or measuring cup, mix together egg and milk.
  6. Add the wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon just until moistened.
  7. Drop the dough onto prepared sheet by 2 heaping tablespoons, leaving at least 2 inches space between each mound. If you want flatter shortcakes, flour your hands and gently flatten each mound of dough to about 1/2 inch thick disks.
  8. Bake for 10 to 14 minutes, or until golden brown.
  9. Cool shortcakes on baking sheet for 2 minutes, then transfer onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. In a skillet, melt butter. Add apple slices and saute for 5 to 7 minutes or until soft. Add caramel sauce and stir in. Remove from heat.
  11. Serve each shortcake sliced in half, topped with apples and more caramel sauce.
