Butterscotch Apple Crisp

Butterscotch Apple Crisp

Here’s the other dessert I made for Bunco the other night, I was on a butterscotch kick.  This one was amazingly delicious, the butterscotch chips added the perfect taste to an ordinary apple crisp.  The recipe comes from “The Food Network” and was easy to make.  I added to the recipe by half so that I could fill a 3 quart or 9 x 13″ pan instead of the 2 quart pan called for in the recipe.

filling:

5 Granny Smith apples (about 2 pounds), peeled and roughly chopped

1 (11 oz) bag butterscotch chips

1/4 cup light brown sugar

1/4 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon allspice

1 lemon, juiced

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed

topping:

3/4 cup flour

1/4 cup light brown sugar

1/2 cup quick oats

pinch salt

1/2 cup butter

3/4 cup pecans, chopped (I used walnuts)

1  Preheat oven to 350.  Butter 2 quart baking dish.

2  For filling:  Toss apples, butterscotch chips, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, allspice, and lemon juice together in large bowl.  Add to baking dish and dot with butter.

3  For topping:  In another bowl, combine flour, sugar, oats, and salt.  Blend butter into mixture (with pastry cutter or 2 forks) until it forms pea sized lumps.  Stir in nuts and sprinkle over filling.

4  Bake until apples are tender and butterscotch is bubbling, about 45 minutes.  Let cool 5 minutes before serving.  (I served with a choice of vanilla ice cream or Cool Whip.)
