Matt's Caramel Apple Crisp

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.

Serves 2

Day 1 - Apple Waffles
Day 2 - Ginger Peach Applesauce
Day 3 - Baked Apples
Day 4 - Apple Turnovers
Day 5 - Apple Bread Pudding

Looks delicious—what brand of caramel did you use? Not sure I've ever seen caramel bits in the store...

i usually make my apple crisp with dried cranberries but this version with caramel sounds too good to resist :)

Topping In a bowl, combime flour, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg add caramels and stir to coat. In another bowl, toss apples with orange juice. Add caramel mixture and mix. Spread into a greased 13x9x2 inch baking pan. For topping, combine sugar and flour in a small bowl cut in butter until crumbly.

I just tried this last night and my kids loved it. I added some cinammon to make it a little sweeter and they loved the twist it brought. I look forward to more of your recipes. Happy cooking!
