Oh, and caramel apples. Yum. I used to work at a Coffee Shop in a Mall in Northern Colorado. We made some great things there, and the aromas were fabulous....so were the smells that would come from our neighbor across the way. The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. Can you say d.e.l.i.c.i.o.u.s?!?!?!?! At least i think so.... Sometimes they'd give us some of their caramel apples...those were great days.
Ok, back to this recipe. ;) I wanted something easy, containing apples and caramel that was yummy. So this is what I came up with! It sure didn't dissappoint me or my husband either. So, I think y'all will enjoy it as well! :)
Easy Caramel Apple Crisp (This will serve 4. In my pictures I made half this recipe since it was just for the 2 of us.)
2 apples, peeled, cored and diced (any variety will work, I used gala--use what you have!)
3 T. whole wheat flour
3 T. sugar (if you are using tart apples, you may need to add more sugar)
4 T. quick oats
2 t. butter/marg.
caramel topping/sauce (found in the ice cream section)
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place the diced apples in the bottom of a small baking dish. (8x8 or so)
2. Mix the dry ingredients together in a small mixing bowl. Then cut in the butter/margarine until it is a crumbly consistency. (It's a streusel topping really.)
3. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the apples, and bake for 25 minutes in a 375 degree oven.
4. Remove from the oven, and serve immediately. Place 1/4 of the crisp in each bowl and drizzle the caramel sauce on top like the picture below. :) Enjoy!
