I bet you are thinking ‘Isn’t apple crisp a Fall type of recipe?’ In general yes, but in this house, we go apple crazy every day.
In addition, seeing that it is Summer time, we are having crazy fun in the kitchen. The crazy fun for this recipe involved Biscoff spread. Yes, the Belgium cookies made into a spread. What? You dont know about Biscoff? Well it is a European cookie first made in Belguim in the 1930′s and is a fun alternative to nut butters and chocolate spreads. It has gained popularity over the years and originally came to America as an in flight treat. Now both Biscoff spread and Biscoff cookies can be found in stores all over the United States.
Plus, it comes in creamy and crunchy so we went crazy with this recipe and used both varieties!
They also have a fun ‘Spread the Love’ contest where consumers shared their creative way that they enjoy Biscoff Spread and now you can vote for your favorite and you could win a year’s supply of Biscoff products!!
4 Granny Smith Apples, peeled and thinly sliced
1 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 heaping tablespoons creamy Biscoff spread, gently softened
1/3 cup unbleached whole-wheat flour
1/3 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 Tablespoon wheat germ
1/3 cup crunchy Biscoff spread
2 tablespoons apple juice
Optional topping: 2 tablespoons Biscoff, melted
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat four large ramekins (or an 8 inch baking dish) with cooking spray unless they are non-stick.
2. Place the apple slices in a large bowl with the sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon and set aside. Place the Biscoff in a microwave safe bowl and melt on low power for 20 minutes. pour over the apples and toss to mix. Transfer to the ramekins/dish and bake for 30 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, combine the flour, oats, wheat germ, and Biscoff spread with a fork until evenly distributed and clumpy.
4. Remove the ramekins/dish and scatter the topping all over the baked apples. Return the dish to the cover and bake for another 25-30. Let cool slightly and top with ice cream, frozen yogurt or if you prefer, a bit if melted butter. If you wish, melt the optional 2 tablespoons of creamy or crunchy Biscoff and then drizzle over ice cream and watch it instantly form a ‘magic shell’
