I put together a dish that is almost too good. I can't stop eating it and find myself sneaking to the refrigerator constantly….and then there is my family, refrigerator door open, digging with a spoon. Hahaha! Problem is…I don't really have a recipe. I just sorta make it. So I'll try for some general proportions.
Carmelized Apple Brown Sugar Oatmeal Crisp
Take at least 3 bags of grocery store bought dried apples. Rehydrate them in boiling water and allow them to fully 'puff' back up. Drain.
Melt a stick of unsalted butter in a LARGE skillet. Add drained apple slices and drop about 3-4 large handfuls of sugar on the apples. (About 3/4 cup to 1 cup). Sprinkle some cinnamon on top, too. Cook over medium heat stirring frequently. (This could take up to 40 minutes.)
The goal is for the apples to become brown and translucent…at times burnt on the edges. This brings out such an INTENSE flavor. If medium heat isn't getting the job done, crank it up and stand over it, stirring every minute or so. You want them really brown.
Place sticky carmelized apples into a 11 x 13 pan and top with an oatmeal crumbly topping I use 1 cup regular oats, mixed with 1 cup light brown sugar and 1 cup all purpose flour. To this I add one stick of melted butter and 1 tsp cinnamon. Mix well and crumble over the top.
Bake at 350 until the top looks firm…maybe 30 minutes. Serve warm (or reheated) with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
