Delicious warm apples, cinnamon, buttery oats and a caramel sauce topping make this easy dessert a family favourite. While apples are a tremendously popular Autumn dessert, our family enjoys desserts with apples year round. This apple crisp recipe is one that I often use for family get togethers and Sunday night dinners.

While apple desserts are always great on their own, I love to pair them with caramel. It really is a fantastic flavour combination. For this recipe I used my  Easy Salted Caramel Sauce but you could also use your favourite jarred variety.

The Best Apples for Baking

When it comes to baking with apples, which apples you use can have a big impact on the end result. I find that some apples are best for eating as is, while others are more suitable to use in pies and crisps. Some apples can lose a lot of their moisture, resulting in a watery baked good, while some apples can get a bit mealy when baked. My go to apple for baking is the Granny Smith, I tend to have very consistent results with it and you can almost always find it in your supermarket. While I sometimes use only Granny Smith apples in a recipe, I prefer to combine two or three apple varieties in my baking. For this crisp I used both Granny Smith and Golden Delicious apples. Some other apples that are well suited for baking are Cortlands, Mutsus, Jonagolds, Braeburns and Honey Crisps.

Some cooks skip peeling their apples for baking recipes, but I prefer to peel my apples. You can use a  crank apple peeler or a simple handheld vegetable peeler. I'm a big fan of the  OXO Peeler as well as the  OXO Apple Cutter.  For this recipe I prepare my crumb topping first, then peel and slice my apples when I'm ready to use them. I toss them with a bit of lemon juice to help slow down the browning process, as well as some cinnamon and sugar for extra flavour.

This recipe comes together very quickly and you can serve it warm, right out of the oven. I like to put this in the oven right before we sit down to eat, the timing works out wonderfully for a delicious, warm dessert after our meal. In theory ice cream is optional, but in my home all apple desserts need a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
