Salted Caramel Apple Crisp

I know that it’s currently hotter than it actually was most of the summer, but I can’t wait any longer to start sharing some fall-ish recipes. It’s like the minute September hits, my taste buds automatically need apple and pumpkin and spice. Even if summer produce is still in season, mentally I prefer anything and everything fall.

I love this crisp. Not only because it has the words “salted caramel” in it, but because its so easy and super delicious. Now I just adore making pies as I’ve made pretty clear around here. (I even confessed my dream of opening my own pie shop someday,) but the fact that this baby is crust-less, therefore making it that much easier to throw together is a huge perk.

Maybe you disagree, but I personally find baking much more satisfying in the colder months. Now I definitely love eating sweets all year long, but when turning the oven on makes your home nice & toasty, it’s preferable for it to have been chilly to begin with don’t you think?

That being said, not even 90 and humid can keep me away from baking all summer long, but when I do I much prefer the end result to be something refreshing. Pies get topped with cold ice cream, brownies get eaten out of the freezer, and ice cream gets made more than ever. Ever since making these amazing cookies in December I’ve been dying for more ways to use them, and I knew they would be just perfect as an ice cream sandwich.

Why does it seem like apples are considered a fall dessert ingredient? Is it just me or are they pretty delicious and in season all year round? There is never ever a time of year that I don’t love apples in desserts and this custardy apple cake is just perfect for a spring or summer treat. I helped my Mother-in-law make it for Easter brunch and it was so delicious I had to share the recipe with you.
