SKILLET APPLE CRISP

I love this recipe for several reasons.  First, it's loaded with flavorful apples....Second, you serve and devour it when it's warm....Third, you serve it with ice cream....Four, I could keep going, but you may just have to try it for yourself!
I made this right after Thanksgiving dinner.  It took about 30 minutes of prep time.  I popped it in the oven while we were playing a board game, and 30 minutes later it was ready.  Oh....and the house smelled awesome while it was baking!


INGREDIENTS:

6 cups peeled and chopped apples (approx. 2.5 pounds) Gala and Granny Smith
2 cups oats (I used quick cook oats)
1 cup flour
½ cup cold butter
½ cup brown sugar 
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 Tbsp. caramel sauce (and additional for serving)
vanilla ice cream for topping


DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In medim bowl, mix oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon and butter cut into small pieces.  Using a pastry blender or fork, crumble the butter into the dry mixture.

On stovetop, heat cast iron skillet until hot.  Add 1 Tbsp. butter and allow it to melt.  Pour in apples and stir gently, then add oatmeal misture and stir with a wooden spoon or spatula to mix together.    Drizzle 2 Tbsp. caramel sauce over the top.  Remove from stove.  Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes or until apples are tender and oatmeal is golden.  

Top with ice cream and more caramel sauce and serve.  

For a fun presentation.  Bring the entire skillet to the table with several spoons and allow your guests to dive in!  

Enjoy!
