This is a recipe from the wall of our old home. Which means, I have no idea where it came from after 7 years. I'm posting these because they are my favorites if they made it to the wall. Try serving this one with some fresh Whipped Cream or Dulce de Leche Ice Cream. It says serves 6, but really only 3 (with seconds). Enjoy.
- Preheat oven to 350°F Did you know you can type the symbol for degree by holding down the Alt key and typing 248? Try it.
- Cut 3 tbs butter into oats, sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg until crumbly.
- Cut 1/3 top off apples. Core out center using melon baller or grapefruit spoon.
- Find more than happy 4yo ready to eat the apple's 'guts', give her half.
- Mix the surviving apple pieces with the crisp mixture.
- Spread rest of butter inside apples. Fill apples with crisp mixture, pressing firmly.
- Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes.
- Top the apples with the apple dip. Bake for 20 more minutes.
Yummy! This was a very nice treat. I omitted the salt and used a Gala apple (it's the only kind I ever have around since it's my favorite :) ). Thanks for sharing!
What a creative way to make an apple crisp. My family loved it! Granny Smiths were perfect to balance the sweetness, and they held together really well. We weren't sure how much of the middle to scoop out - we tried just getting the core out but that didn't leave room for much crisp, so we scraped out a bunch more. I used the cream-cheese caramel dip which 2bleu recommended, and I thought I'd have preferred it more with a regular caramel dip or sauce. But one family member said "No, I love it this way" and another said "I would love it either way!" so you can use whatever you prefer! (next time they are getting caramel sauce since I am the cook).
This crisp is the best I have had! I used Granny Smith apples, because I knew it would be sweet enough with the caramel sauce on it. I also added about 3/4 c. finely chopped nuts in with my oatmeal. My family all wanted the recipe when I brought some over to my sister's house for them to try. What an awesome dessert and I know I will have this new favorite of mine often. I had mine with Vanilla ice cream to offset the sweetness of the caramel and I enjoyed every last crumb!
