Home » desserts » CARAMEL APPLE CRISP


6 medium apples (6 cups) cored and sliced thin
1 tbsp Splenda Granulated
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
2/3 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup white whole-wheat flour
2 tbsp Splenda Brown Sugar Blend
2 tbsp butter
1 egg white
1/3 cup chopped pecans
2 tbsp sugar-free caramel ice-cream topping

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl toss the apples with the Splenda Granulated and cinnamon.  Spoon evenly into a 2-quart baking dish or pan.

To make the topping, combine the oats, flour, and Splenda Brown Sugar Blend in a medium bowl.  Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut the butter into the oat mixture until the mixture is crumbly.  Stir in the egg white and the pecans until all combined.  Sprinkle over the apples in the baking dish or pan.

Bake at 375 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes until the topping is golden brown and the apples are tender.  If topping starts to get too brown, cover loosely with foil.  Remove from oven, remove foil, and allow to cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes.

Just before serving, place the caramel in a cup or small bowl and microwave on high for about 10 seconds.  Drizzle over the crisp.
