Winter is in full swing here in the Hudson Valley, which means I’m craving all of the cozy things all of the time. Fuzzy sweaters, scented candles, hot showers, mugs of coffee, and a warm bowl of salted caramel apple crisp can make even the most miserable day more manageable!

One of the best things about my salted caramel apple crisp is that it’s SO easy! No crust to roll, no dough to chill, no pie to cool. Simply slice your apples, make your topping, bake, and serve!

Tips and Tricks for Recipe Success:

  • You may use homemade salted caramel sauce or store bought salted caramel sauce for this recipe. If you’s like to go the homemade route, check out my 6-Minute Small Batch Salted Caramel Sauce.
  • Don’t slice your apples too thin or they’ll become soggy as they bake. Medium-sized slices will yield the best results.
  • This salted caramel apple crisp is best served warm, the same day it’s made. However leftovers will keep, covered in the fridge, for 3 days.
  • I love to use a variety of apples in this dessert, but just one type will also work. I find granny smith, jonagold, mutsu, and braeburn are all great baking apples.

Ingredients

  • For the Apple Filling:
  • 10 cups sliced apples (see post for more on this)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • For the Crumb Topping:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • Garnish:
  • 1 cup salted caramel sauce (see post for more on this)
  • Flaky sea salt, for sprinkling, optional
  • Ice cream, for serving, optional

Instructions

  1. For the Apple Filling:
  2. Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish. Place the sliced apples in a large bowl and toss with the lemon juice; set aside. In a medium bowl combine the flour, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Sprinkle this mixture over the apples and toss well to coat. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish and set aside while you make the crumb topping.
  3. For the Crumb Topping:
  4. In a large bowl combine the flour, brown sugar, oats, pecans, baking powder, nutmeg and cinnamon. Using a pastry blender or two forks, cut in the cold butter until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Sprinkle over apple mixture. Bake in preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the crumb is golden and the apples are tender. Drizzle with salted caramel sauce and serve warm, with flaky sea salt and ice cream, if desired.
