My Mouth Watering, Caramel Apple Crisp Recipe

Thanks to my father, I'm a big foodie who's been cooking and baking since I was a young girl. Cooking is a passion that brings me joy.

Caramel Apple Crisp


Apple Crisp

Apple crisp or apple crumble is a dessert consisting of baked chopped apples, topped with a crisp streusel crust. Ingredients usually include cooked apples, butter, sugar, flour, cinnamon, and often oats and brown sugar, ginger, and/or nutmeg. Source: Wikipedia

This Caramel Apple Crisp is a Family Favorite in the Fall

If your looking for a great dessert recipe when fall and winter rolls around, this is one of my favorite's. It's easy to make and your family will love it. I add caramel to my apple crisp which makes it gooier and more delicious. The only putzy part of making this dessert is cutting the apples into thin slices. I hope you enjoy one of my family favorite dessert recipe's.

GmaGoldie-Oh Ya, Hersheys caramel is the bomb. I learned this only because of Laura's kids. They love to put it on their vanilla ice-cream.

I had to laugh that you said something about the oldie song I put on my hub. Not many people comment about it, so thank you. Glad I could perk up your day. Happy Thanksgiving to you:)

Linda Rogers (author) from Minnesota on November 25, 2010:

wavechild-It is very addicting, get ready. Happy Thanksgiving:)

Kelly Kline Burnett from Madison, Wisconsin on November 24, 2010:

Minnetonka Twin,

I didn't know Hershey's made caramel. This is one of my husband's favorite - it is on my shopping list for today. Thank you! And the song I haven't heard for decades - oh, such fun! You made me smile on a dreary morning.

wavechild from somewhere in the Pacific on November 23, 2010:

Wow, that looks so good...

Linda Rogers (author) from Minnesota on November 17, 2010:

Linda Rogers (author) from Minnesota on November 03, 2010:

I so agree with you akirchner. Hey, if you cant do chocolate, you can have caramel. I didn't know they had little caramel bits but sounds great and easy. I used the syrup because it was in the fridge and I didn't have to deal with melting caramel in a double boiler. Simple is better. Your so sweet to come see my recipe. Thanks

Linda Rogers (author) from Minnesota on November 03, 2010:

Hi susannah. Oh, how perfect, salty thanksgiving food and a nice warm sweet apple crisp for dessert. Thx for reading my recipe.

Audrey Kirchner from Washington on November 03, 2010:

I found it! I'm gonna have to try and tweak this if you don't mind and maybe do it with those little caramel bits they have now!! Wouldn't that be good? I love caramel and since I can't eat chocolate, I think it's only fair for me to have all the caramel I want, don't you agree?

Thanks for turning me onto this recipe....yum!

susannah42 from Florida on November 03, 2010:

Thanks for this recipe. I am going to make it for Thanksgiving. Can't wait.

Linda Rogers (author) from Minnesota on November 01, 2010:

Hi pmccray-I am not an oatmeal gal either but it just gives the apple crisp a better consistency. You dont even taste the oatmeal. This is a great way for you to get fiber in a fun and delicious way.Thanks so much for hitting all the buttons for me and sharing and bookmarking it. I am grateful:)

Loks great will have to try. Very similar to my stove top apple crisp.

pmccray on October 26, 2010:

This looks so good. It is a must try for me. I not a big fan of apples nor oatmeal. I need the fiber and vitamins for both and I can't think of better way to involve both ingredients. Marked useful, awesome, bookmarked and shared.

Hi kids-toy-box-Great idea substituting caramel for honey. That sounds good too. on October 25, 2010:

Sounds great, I am going to make them this week.

India Arnold from Northern, California on October 24, 2010:

It is a rainy Northern California day. After reading your recipe I am already putting together a plan! Just the idea of your crispy delight warms me from the inside out. Thank you for sharing something so soothing.

You've done a good thing here.


poetvix from Gone from Texas but still in the south. Surrounded by God's country. on October 24, 2010:

Oh geez this made me hungry! Sounds great and I can't wait to try it out.

kids-toy-box on October 24, 2010:

Will definitely try it that the winter months are coming will be spending more time indoors. I am not much of a sugar fan so will substitute the Hershey's Caramel Syrup with honey perhaps.

Linda Rogers (author) from Minnesota on October 23, 2010:

Hi bayoulady. The song on utube is, "Little Green Apples." The singers are Glen Campbell and his daughter Debby. I thought it would be a funny song to fit my apple crisp. HEE HEE! Thanks for checkin out my recipe.

Linda Rogers (author) from Minnesota on October 23, 2010:

Hi vietnam-Yes, this isn't a recipe for those watching calories. When you let yourself have a SPECIAL treat, this has to be it. Quite the yummy reward.

Linda Rogers (author) from Minnesota on October 23, 2010:

Ingenira-Hi, so glad to hear you bookmarked my apple crisp. I made it about 5 times in 10 days. The kids can't get enough of it.

Linda Rogers (author) from Minnesota on October 23, 2010:

kids-toy-box-Hi, thanks for stopping by. Yes, I cut them into squares but I would bet you could use a tart pan if you wanted. I usually just use my glass pyrex baking dish. Get ready, cause they are soooo awesome.

Linda Rogers (author) from Minnesota on October 23, 2010:

Hi CM-Yes, but it tastes even BETTER. Thanks for stoppin in friend:)
