Tempt My Tummy - Apple Gingerbread Crisp

I found a recipe of something similar made with canned apple pie filling but this is fall....and I have a ton of apples. I am a huge fan of "crisps" my first love being good old fashioned apple crisp with vanilla ice cream. I also found a killer peach crisp recipe that I posted about HERE. But this was over-the-top good. And easy. Enough said.

Gingerbread Apple Crisp

Gingerbread mix (14oz)
¾ cup water
¾ cup brown sugar (dark, if you have it)

½ cup butter
8 or more tart apples, pealed and thinly sliced

Topping: Mix ½ cup of the dry gingerbread mix with ¼ cup brown sugar and ¼ cup chilled butter. It will be crumbly. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 375ยบ. Mix the remaining gingerbread mix with ¾ cup water. Mix apples, ¼ cup melted butter, ½ cup brown sugar. In a 13x9 inch pan layer apple mixture, gingerbread batter, then topping. Bake 20 to 30 minutes.

I will make this several more times this season.

  1. This sounds wonderful! I don't think I can get gingerbread mix in England, but I'm sure I'll think of something I can substitute - it looks too good to miss out on :)

  2. Dropping by from Recipe Swap Thursday. Boy that looks and sounds delicious. The gingerbread spices must be killer with apples! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Wow, what an amazing dessert. This sounds so much better than the other everyday apple crisp and the ginger flavor would pair so well with the apples. By the way, I'm holding a CSN giveaway on my blog and you're welcome to come by and enter.

  4. Yum! This sounds wonderful. Thanks for sharing it on Crock Pot Wednesday. Come back again this week for another chance to enter for the BBB giveaway.

  5. This sounds SO good. I will have to try it - and soon!
