I had a few apples that were getting near their expiration and an urge for fall baking. So I pulled together a few things and made an apple crisp bake experiment thingy. It wasn’t a huge success and it wasn’t a huge fail either. I think I will be an on going recipe optimization quest. Here is the basic experiment.
-small tube of buttermilk biscuits (5 biscuits) cut into quarters
-two small apples peeled and roughly chopped
-1 cup Carmel sauce – I used Smuckers Butterscotch Carmel sauce
-1 cup rolled oats
-2 Tbsp melted butter
Place biscuit pieces in the bottom of a shallow ungreased baking dish. Cover with apple pieces. Pour Carmel sauce over apples and biscuit pieces. Mix melted butter with oats and sprinkle over top. The initial bake time was 15 minutes at 350, but I kept returning it to the oven until the biscuits were cooked through and lightly browned so more like 30 minutes give or take a few. The Carmel was super bubbly, that was awesome. Over all I think the oats needed to be a little sweeter, so I might mix some brown sugar or crushed gram crackers with them next time. I also might cut the apples into smaller pieces or sauté them a little first to make them a little squishy. Nom Nom.
