Caramel Apple Ideas

Oh caramel apples! How I love you! I’ve been searching Pinterest for some caramel apple recipes and found some great ones that I thought I would share with you all. Fall and caramel apples just go hand in hand don’t you think? I’m getting itchy to make some.

Here’s a basic caramel recipe that looks divine from Tips From A Typical Mom

Dreamy Apple Cranberry Salad

Last week I made this salad for a party using items I already had on hand and it turned out pretty good. I got a lot of great compliments on it, so wanted to share it with all of you. It took 15 minutes to make and was so refreshing and light. The leftovers were even better.

Tuna Sandwich Anyone?

Years ago a good friend of mine made me a tuna sandwich.  It wasn’t the typical sandwich I would normally make with pickles, etc.  This one was even better (I’m not a pickle and mustard fan.) and one I make all the time.  It’s got a sweet, delicious taste that I just love.

The difference……SHREDDED APPLE!

Apple Crisp

I don’t know what it is about Fall and the weather getting colder, but every year at this time I feel like cooking and baking.  Maybe it’s that “gathering for winter” mentality that squirrels have or the weather not being warm enough to be out in and I’m bored.  Do you get like this?

Anywho….I made some Apple Crisp tonight and it’s delish!  The apples on my tree have been ready for a few weeks and I hate to see them go to waste.  I also plan on getting some Applesauce canned soon.   Have you ever tried crockpot oatmeal and warm chunky applesauce on top.  Yep!  It’s as good as it sounds.

Here’s the recipe for the Apple Crisp.  Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.  Happy Fall Y’all!

6 apples – peeled, cored, and sliced

2 tablespoons white sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup old-fashioned oats

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 cup cold butter

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Toss apples with white sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a medium bowl to coat; pour into a 9-inch square baking dish.
  • Mix brown sugar, oats, flour, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a separate bowl. Use a pastry cutter or 2 forks to mash cold butter into the oats mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs; spread over the apples to the edges of the baking dish. Pat the topping gently until even.
  • Bake in preheated oven until golden brown and sides are bubbling, about 40 minutes.
  • Top with vanilla ice cream or whip cream.
