Caramel Apple Crisp

There is something magical about the combination of apples, oats and cinnamon in this Caramel Apple Crisp. The crisp apple just asks to be served hot and fresh from the oven garnished with a delicious scoop of vanilla ice cream. The hot fruit chips are the equivalent of the comfort food of dessert.


5 cups of cored, sliced and peeled apples.
4 tablespoons of butter
1 cup of brown sugar
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
A crunchy filling:
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of salt
3/4 cup chilled butter, cubed [1 1/2 sticks]
1/2 cup of nuts of your preference [optional]


Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a 3-quart baking dish with cooking spray.
On the top of the stove, over medium-high heat, simmer butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg.
Simmer for 3-5 minutes until the sugar has completely dissolved. Stir to prevent sticking.
Add the sliced apples and stir until covered.
Remove from the heat and add the vanilla.
Pour it into the oven dish.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, oatmeal, ground cinnamon and salt. Cut the cold butter into the flour until it looks like peas. [Tip: A low speed hand mixer works very well for this if you don’t have a food processor]
Add the nuts. Mix well.
Sprinkle over the caramelized apples.
Bake for 45 minutes until bubbly and crisp coating is golden. Rest on the counter for 15 minutes to allow the caramel to thicken.
Serve hot with vanilla ice cream.
