This recipe has received wonderful reviews from readers over at Taste of Home! Let’s take a look at what they’ve had to say about it:
This recipe is a keeper for me. It excels all other apple crisp recipes, in my opinion. I used a whole package of caramel bits instead of regular caramels to save time and work. Results were amazing!
This recipe is replacing the old family recipe that I have used for 30 years! The caramel is the secret ingredient that makes it so wonderful. I used a bag of Kraft Caramel Bits. It beats unwrapping and cutting up all of those squares!
That’s a great tip! You could definitely save some time using caramel bits!
3 cups old-fashioned oats
2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup cold butter, cubed
8 cups thinly sliced peeled tart apples
1 package (14 ounces) caramels, halved
1 cup apple cider, divided
- Preheat oven to 350°. Mix oats, flour, brown sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl; cut in butter until crumbly. Press half of the mixture into a greased 13 x 9-in. baking dish. Layer half of each of the following: apples, caramels and remaining oat mixture. Repeat layers. Drizzle 1/2 cup cider over top.
- Bake 30 minutes, do not cover. Drizzle with remaining cider; bake 15-20 minutes longer or until apples are tender. 12 servings.
