I have been on a huge apple kick lately. Since apples are good for you, I don’t feel one ounce of guilt for indulging my craving. In fact, I should be praised for promoting such healthy fare on my blog. Of course, I did stuff my face full of apple crisp. And salted caramel sauce too. Maybe I feel a tad guilty. Or not.
My mom’s recipe was the launch pad for my version. She uses tapioca, which I did not have on hand so I made a few changes. It still turned out delicious, but I thought to myself – “Tanya, how can you make it out of this world?” The answer—top it with salted caramel sauce.
I love, love, love caramel. I am less enthralled with making it. It’s a little fussy to make so I hewed and hawed over making it and finally dug deep and just did it after I found a tasty looking recipe on Blissful Domesticity. It’s really, really good and less scary to make than I anticipated.
However, I won’t judge if you opt not to make it. Another option would be to make my super easy caramel sauce (which doesn’t use a candy thermometer) or pick up a jar of caramel sauce at the store. Because a warm piece of apple crisp demands to be topped with vanilla ice cream and covered with caramel sauce. Really, it does.
