Easy Apple Crisps

This. This right here is what fall in our home is all about. The caramel, apples, the crumbly brown sugar topping, the delicious scent of the wonderful baked goodness filling your home…right now I cannot think of anything more delightful than a stuffed baked apple filled with apple crisp filling.

Honestly, I cannot stand apple pie. Both the hubs and the kids are huge apple pie fans…but me not so much. Then again I am not a huge pie fan. But these…these I can eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and many, many snacks in between. This is such an easy apple crisp recipe that I can make it in a matter of minutes whenever the urge (yes it is an uncontrollable urge) hits.

But here is the thing, apple crisp in a casserole dish doesn’t taste half as good as apple crisp stuffed back into an apple and then baked. Seriously. This is the best way to eat apple crisp, hands down. I don’t know about you but I like ice cream on top of my apple crisp. I like ice cream on top of everything, but in this case it’s actually a must. The ice cream to crumble topping to saucy cinnamon apple stuff must be just right in every single bite and what better way to do that then to pack all of those layers into an actual apple? This is my new favorite fall treat!

Ingredients

  • 8 apples I used fuji apples
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

crumble topping

  • ½ cup flour
  • ¼ cup oats
  • cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. First, prepare the crumble topping. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, oats, brown sugar, sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Cut in the butter with a pastry knife, or two forks, or with your hands until mixture is crumbly. Set aside.
  3. Peel and chop 4 of the apples. Add chopped apples, vanilla, butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Microwave for 3 minutes.
  4. Chop the tops off of the remaining 4 apples and use a spoon to scoop out the flesh. Discard the flesh. You don't need to get every little bit out, just enough to make a "bowl" for the filling.
  5. Fill scooped-out apples with apple filling from the sauce pan. Top with a generous amount of crumble topping.
  6. Place stuffed apples on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes until crumble topping is crispy. Serve warm and top with ice cream and caramel sauce if desired. Enjoy!
