Caramel Apple Crisp

Please excuse my lack of posting this last week,
our family took a little Fall Vacation to the Windy City of Chicago.
You can check out what we did on our family blog.

Now on to this delicious apple dessert.
This is a great twist on the traditional Apple Crisp.
Adding the caramel topping gives this dessert an extra Yummy flavor!
I do not remember where I found this recipe, but I have used it many times since.
This is a must make dessert for fall!

Caramel Apple Crisp

-1/2 cup caramel topping (the kind you would put on top of ice cream)
-1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
-6 baking apples (I like to use Golden Delicious), peeled, and cup into 1/2 inch slices about 6 cups
-2/3 cup all-purpose flour
-1/2 cup packed brown sugar
-1/2 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces
-2/3 cups quick-cooking oats

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.

2. In a large bowl, stir together caramel topping and the cinnamon until well mixed. Add peeled and sliced apples; toss until evening coated. Spread in ungreased 8-inch square (2 quart) glass baking dish.

3. In same bowl, mix 2/3 cup flour and the brown sugar. Cut in butter using a pastry blender or fork, until the mixture looks coarse crumbs. Stir in oats. Crumble mixture over apples in baking dish.

4. Bake 45-50 minutes or until apples are tender and topping is golden brown.

5. Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped topping, then drizzle extra caramel topping over all.
