Here’s great tasting apple and oats crisp flavored with cardamom and cinnamon. Serve this delicious baked dessert with caramel cream.
medium tart baking apples, peeled, sliced (4 cups)
cup plus 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
cup all-purpose flour
cup quick-cooking oats
to 3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
teaspoon ground cinnamon
cup cold butter or margarine
cup chopped pecans, if desired
cup heavy whipping cream
cup caramel topping
Heat oven to 375°F. Grease bottom and sides of 8-inch square baking dish with shortening or cooking spray.
In medium bowl, toss apples with 1/3 cup of the brown sugar. Spread apples in dish. In another bowl, stir remaining 2/3 cup brown sugar, the flour, oats, cardamom and cinnamon until well mixed. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Stir in pecans. Sprinkle over apples.
Bake 30 to 40 minutes or until topping is golden brown and apples are tender when pierced with fork. Cool 45 minutes before serving.
In chilled large deep bowl, beat whipping cream and caramel topping with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Serve caramel cream with warm crisp. Drizzle with additional caramel topping, if desired.
For a burst of exotic, spicy flavor, purchase fresh whole cardamom and grind the seeds with a mortar and pestle or in a spice grinder.
If you chill the bowl and beaters in the refrigerator or freezer for 10 to 20 minutes or until cold to the touch, the cream will whip faster.
