Caramel Apple Crisp

Caramel Apple Crisp by Nutmeg Nanny

It’s 8:08am we were supposed to be on the road at 8am sharp….whoops. This morning my boyfriend and I are off to Ohio for my best friends wedding. You all know the lucky gal. I made her the yummy lemon cake 🙂 So while I’m running late I thought it would be the best time to do a quick post before we hit the road.

I’m leaving you with a delicious caramel apple crisp recipe. Just as a warning the lemon makes the caramel taste a bit weird but when it cooks together it mellows out a lot. When I first tasted my caramel I was sure I had burned it (even though it didn’t look burned) because of it’s taste, but I cooked it with the apples in the oven anyway and realized it’s ok after baking. Enjoy!

    I’ve always been intimidated of making homemade caramel sauce, but this sounds very straightforward (and delicious!). And I LOVE apple crisp, even more than apple pie…for some reason, I usually scoop the pie filling out of the crust and give the crust to someone else anyway…so crisp is perfect for me!

    This is scrumptious looking. I want to run to the kitchen and make it now. It is two o’clock in the morning. I think I will get some sleep, instead.

    I am printing it now so I can make it tomorrow.
