This warm caramel apple crisp just screams fall. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you have one winner of a dessert for your family and guests.




  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter (melted)

Apple Filling

  • 2 pounds I used 4 large apples apples, such as Gala or Braeburn
  • caramel topping
  • 1/4 cup light-brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon


  1. Step one: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease the ramekins.I used 6 ramekins for this recipe. Put the ramekins on a cookie sheet to bake.
  2. Step two: Prepare the topping by combining the oats, brown sugar, salt and melted unsalted butter.
  3. Step three: Peel, core and cut into chunks the apples. I use Braeburn apples because in my experience they have cooked the best in a crisp. I also cut up the apples smaller for this recipe since I was baking them in ramekins. For a regular apple crisp in an 8×8, I cut them into slices.
  4. Step four: Combine the apples, brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
  5. Step five: Spoon the apple mixture into the greased ramekins.
  6. Step six: Drizzle some caramel topping over the apples.
  7. Step seven: Spoon the oat topping over the apples and caramel.
  8. Step eight: Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 – 35 minutes
  9. Step seven: Serve with ice cream and a drizzle of caramel topping.
