This caramel apple crisp is a comforting cold-weather dessert. Instead of making caramel, I use dulce de leche in the apple mixture. The combination is a match made in heaven! If you don’t have an oven-safe skillet, you can transfer the cooked apple mixture to a casserole before putting on the topping and baking. The nuts add a wonderful crunch to the topping, but if you would like a nut-free version, use 1 1/3  cup each, flour and oats. You can use store-bought dulce de leche or one full recipe of my Easy Dulce de Leche

0/8 Instructions
  • Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and preheat the oven to 450F/230C
  • For the Topping
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, pecans, oats, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon and salt.
  • Stir in the butter and mix until the mixture is moistened. Set aside.
  • For the Filling
  • Peel, core and cut the apples into 1/2 inch (1 cm) dice.
  • Melt the butter in a 12-inch (30 cm) oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add the apples, raisins, cinnamon and rum. Cook stirring frequently until the apples begin to soften and are beginning to turn translucent. Do not fully cook the apples or the final result will be overcooked.
  • Add in the dulce de leche and salt and stir to coat the apples.
  • Crumble the topping evenly over the apples. Bake until the topping is a deep golden brown, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Cool on a rack for about 15-20 minutes until warm. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream for an amazing, comforting dessert!
