Holiday Dessert Recipe

 
I know you guys wanted to see more recipes on the blog, and I have the perfect one for you all to use for Christmas this year! This is seriously such an easy dessert to throw together, especially for the crazy busy moms like me. We all know a recipe that’s low stress is way better this time of year when we’re running against the holiday clock, but it has to be something that delivers big flavor! Introducing, this caramel apple crisp made with the delicious new Pazazz Apple! The star of this dessert is the Pazazz Apple, a new apple harvested later in the fall, which means we get to enjoy the crisp, fresh taste all the way into the winter months. That is something I can totally get behind because these apples make such a special snack or can be turned into the perfect dessert while entertaining! They have a great balance of crisp texture, combined with the juicy sweet, yet tart flavor of a Honeycrisp, making them the perfect addition for all of your holiday baking or entertaining platters! Plus, you can also turn them into a totally Pinterest-worthy dessert! ;)
 

 

Easy Apple Recipe

 
I can not stress how easy this recipe is and how delicious it is with these apples. Seriously, we’re thinking life gets a lot more flavorful with Pazazz! ;) For the topping, all you have to do is add flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt together in a food processor (or use a fork if you don’t have one). Then add in the butter and combine until evenly distributed. Then add in the oats. For the delicious apple filling, melt your butter in a large pan over medium heat. Once melted combine the apple slices, brown sugar, flour, lemon juice, cinnamon, and salt into the pan with the butter. Let this cook for about 8-10 minutes. Once the apples start to soften and become tender, remove from heat and stir in that delicious, gooey caramel sauce. Add your apple filling into a 9” deep pie dish, top with the oat topping and bake at 350ºF for 35 to 40 minutes. Your filling should be bubbling and the topping a nice golden, crispy brown! Serve with vanilla ice cream and extra caramel.

Trust me when I say everybody will be asking for this recipe this year. And make sure to look for those delicious Pazazz Apples in your local Safeway stores!
