This is such a yummy dessert! It is much like an apple carmel topping, and we love to eat it on top of our vanilla ice cream! I took it to my parents house to share with my family. They were licking the dish clean and wishing for more. (That is always a sign that your dish is a hit!)
10 cups apples, peeled & cubed
1¼ cups sugar
2 Tablespoons Fruit Fresh
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
½ cup flour
½ cup sugar
¼ cup flour
½ cup quick rolled oats
½ teaspoon cinnamon
4 Tablespoon butter, softened
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Wash, peel and cube enough apples to make about 10 cups. In a separate bowl, combine sugar, Fruit Fresh, cinnamon, and flour. Mix well. Add to apples and mix with hands until all apples are coated. Let sit for 15 minutes while making the topping.
To make topping, combine sugar, four, oats, & cinnamon in clean dry bowl. Cut in butter, until all ingredients are moist and crumby.
Place apples in large 3 or 4 quart casserole dish. Place topping over apples.
Cover and bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 25 minutes. Let sit for 10 or 15 minutes before serving.
- I used Granny Smith apples for this recipe. They tend to be a little tart, so if you use a sweet apple, you might want to decrease the sugar a little.
- The apples do cook down, so after you let it sit, you have about half the amount you started with.
- You can half this recipe, but I would still make the full topping amount. You could also split the recipe between two smaller baking dishes, but then I would probably make double the topping. Yes, the topping is that good!
