My mother makes incredible apple crisp, and I've added a few twists of my own. We think it's best warm, with ice cream on the side. —Nancy Heishman, Las Vegas, Nevada

  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 6 cups thinly sliced peeled tart apples (about 6 medium)
  • 6 caramels
  • 1/3 cup rum or orange juice
  • 3/4 cup crushed gingersnap cookies (about 15 cookies)
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • Vanilla ice cream


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, mix the first six ingredients. Add apples; toss to coat. In a small saucepan, combine caramels and rum. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until caramels are melted. Pour over apple mixture; toss to coat. Transfer to a greased 8-in. square baking dish.
  2. For topping, in a small bowl, mix crushed cookies, brown sugar and flour; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over filling. Bake 35-40 minutes or until apples are tender. Cover loosely with foil if top browns too quickly. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
