caramel-apple crisp

I’ve never liked those caramel apples on sticks that seem to show up this time of year (or their bright red candied cousins, either). Low quality apples, covered in low quality caramel is usually how they go. Thankfully, this Caramel-Apple Crisp has nothing to do with those things. Here, we have luxurious homemade caramel sauce coating whatever apples we like best, baked soft and saucy under a brown sugar and oat topping. I used Cameos, which I love as an eating apple and I know can bake juicy, so I did add a small sprinkling of cornstarch to the caramel-apple filling, just so it wouldn’t be too loose. I’m a big fan of fruit crisps in general (so much easier than pie!), and I have a feeling I’ll be making this one again.

If you don’t have the book Baking with Dorie: Sweet, Salty & Simple by Dorie Greenspan, get it and join us as we bake through it every second and fourth Tuesdays. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll and all the other participation deets over on Tuesdays with Dorie!

  1. As always, that is a perfectly delicious photo. This was a repeater for sure, and thank you for the tip on the cornstarch as I did have some extra moisture at the bottom…nothing disturbing, but I’m thinking the cornstarch would be a good idea.

    • it really was just a sprinkle to get more of a sauce than a juice

  2. Picture perfection! Looks delicious…and I am with you on the candid apples/caramel apples this time of year haha!

  3. I adored this crisp. Yours looks delish – makes me want it all over again.

  4. Looks so good – and yes, I prefer this over a caramel apple anytime!

  5. Good call on the cornstarch, I should have done that or a bigger pan to bake away all those juices. Anyway the caramel sauce was a winner for me so will be making that again. Ice cream with this is the best but we used whipped cream.
