Caramel Apple Crisp!


I love caramel apples in the Fall, you know the kind that you make yourself by melting caramel and dipping them and then rolling in nuts or whatever you choose.  I also love a good apple crisp.  This recipe puts those two great Fall flavors together.   It's an easy dessert to put together, but you will get a lot of compliments because the aroma is just delightful and let's face it, anything with caramel involved has to be good.   Here is what you will need for this. 

6 to 7 baking apples, cored, peeled and sliced (I used Granny Smith)
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon, divided
1 cup caramel ice cream topping, warmed and divided
1/2 cup butter, cut in pieces (1 stick)
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup quick cooking oats (not instant)
pinch of salt
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Place the apple slices in a 2 quart casserole or baking dish that has been sprayed with nonstick spray.  Sprinkle the apples with 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1/4 cup white sugar.   Drizzle with 1/2 cup of caramel ice cream topping. 

In a separate bowl combine the brown sugar, flour, salt, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and vanilla.  Add the butter slices and cut them in with a pastry cutter or a knife until it is a crumbly texture.  Stir the oats in until well combined.   

Crumble over top of the apples.  Place in oven and bake for about 45-50 minutes or until nice and brown.  After out of the oven and right before serving, drizzle the other 1/2 cup of caramel topping over the top of the crisp. 
 
Serve with a scoop of ice cream and if you want to go all the way, drizzle a little more caramel on top!

    2. I make this all the time. It's delicious. I also ;use the caramel topping in my apple pies substituting it for some of the brown sugar. I always use brown sugar instead of white in my apple desserts
