Caramel Apple Crisp

A reader friend has requested the Caramel Apple Crisp recipe from Bon Appetit that I made earlier this week. I didn’t get a picture of it, though…

I usually make the crisp recipe from Williams Sonoma’s baking book, but DH said this one blows it out of the water. Enjoy!

Preheat oven to 375°F. Stir sugar and butter in large skillet over medium heat until smooth sauce forms. Add lemon juice and cook, stirring, until caramel is deep brown, about 5 minutes. Mix in salt, then apples. Toss until apples are evenly coated, about 1 minute. Scrape apples and caramel into 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish; spread evenly. Sprinkle topping evenly over.
Bake crisp until apples are tender, sauce is bubbling thickly, and topping is golden, about 50 minutes. Let crisp cool 15 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream.
