Caramel Apple Crisp

I love complicated baking recipes with outstanding results. Many food bloggers know about the Daring Bakers. Well, this recipe is for the Lazy Bakers! I call it a "cheater recipe" (anything with a mix), but it is simple and delicious, so who cares. Thanks to my friend Jan, for this yummy fall treat.


6 apples
1 cup caramel ice cream topping
1/2 t. cinnamon
1 package oatmeal cookie mix
1 stick butter, cold and cut into small pieces
1/2 c. chopped toasted pecans

Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9x13 baking dish. Peel, core, and slice apples in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine caramel sauce with cinnamon. Toss the apples with the caramel mixture, and spread evenly into the prepared baking pan. In another bowl, mix oatmeal cookie mix, cold butter pieces, and pecans. Using a pastry blender, combine until butter is incorporated into tiny pieces the size of peas. Sprinkle the dry mixture over the apples evenly, and bake for 40-45 minutes until golden brown. Cool slightly, and serve with vanilla ice cream.

Definitely my kind of recipe. I will try this one Saturday morning for my grandchildren. I already have the apples, caramel sauce and cookie mix on hand!
