We all have fond memories of eating caramel apples at fairs and pumpkin patches. But in reality gnawing on a caramel apple can be a filling-loosening ordeal. In comes Suvie caramel apple crisp as a modern, non-tooth cracking, scrumptious solution. What makes this caramel apple crisp different from other apple crisps you ask? Our humble butterscotch pudding mix of course. The pudding mix gives the crisp a caramelly sweetness and cuts through the tang of the green apples. The topping gives the crisp a hearty crunch and contrasts delightfully with the soft apples. Dollop on a scoop of caramel ice cream and hark back to your childhood getting ready for that hayride.

Ingredients

Caramel Apple Crisp-644
  • 5 medium green apples (approx 24 oz), peeled and sliced ¼” thick
  • ⅓ cup packed light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup flour
  • ¼ cup oats
  • ⅓ cup cook-and-serve butterscotch pudding mix
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ cup cold butter, cut into ¼” cubes
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • Vanilla or caramel ice cream (optional)

Instructions

Lie sliced apples flat in a Suvie pan. In a medium bowl combine brown sugar, flour, oats, butterscotch pudding mix, and cinnamon. Stir to combine. Toss the cubed butter into the dry ingredients and use your fingers to work the butter into the flour. The topping should resemble wet sand with some chunks of butter remaining. Add the walnuts and stir to combine.
