Caramel Apple Crisp

You create the caramel sauce and toss it with the apples, rather than just tossing the apples with the brown sugar before tossing them into the baking dish.

Servings - 8 servings


  • 8 golden delicious apples peeled, cored and quartered (I like these because they are the sweetest.)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp butter or dairy free margarine
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

Topping Ingredients

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter or dairy free margarine


  • Preheat the oven to 375. Lightly grease a 9×13 glass baking dish. Prepare the apples.
  • In a medium saucepan, cook the brown sugar, butter/margarine and lemon juice. Bring to bubbly, then reduce heat and stir until sauce darkens. Add the cinnamon. Then toss in the prepared apples. Then place into the prepared baking dish.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg and salt. Cut in the cold butter/margarine, until little crumbles form. Sprinkle the topping all over the caramel sauce coated apples.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 50 minutes, or until apples are tender, sauce is bubbly and thick, and topping is golden.
  • Serve Caramel Apple Crisp with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
