Day 6 in my week of apple recipes...
When we picked up caramel bits at Target a few weeks ago Matt said he wanted to try using them in apples with a crisp topping. So when I started this week of apple recipes I told him he would have to make it one night.
Well, he mixed up quite a tasty treat here, seriously we both couldn't stop raving about this as we ate it. The thinly sliced apples become very soft & are amazing with the flavors of cinnamon & caramel. The crispy topping is almost cookie-like & creates a good contrast in texture to the apples as do the chew bits of caramel. Eat this while its warm & the caramel is still soft, topped with a little vanilla ice cream.
Matt's Caramel Apple Crisp
2 small apples, peeled, cored & thinly sliced
1/4 t cinnamon
1/4 c brown sugar
2 T caramel bits
2 T rolled oats
2 T flour
1 1/2 T butter
Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a medium bowl mix together the apples, cinnamon, 2 T of the brown sugar & the caramel bits. Divide between two 1 cup ramekins.
In a small bowl mix together the remaining 2 t brown sugar, oats & flour. Use you hands to mix in the butter creating a soft dough. Split the dough in half & flatten into two discs then place them on top of the apples. Place a few more caramel bits on top if you wish.
Bake for 35 minutes.
