Campfire Apple Crisp

Labor Day weekend has come and gone, which can only mean one thing; summer is over and fall is upon us. Camping in the summer is always great, but camping in the fall can be even better. Cooler weather, changing foliage, weekends away with the family to escape the midweek stresses of work and school. Here is a fall camping dessert recipe that is sure to start off your fall camping right and keep you coming back for more!

  • ½ cup old-fashioned oats
  • 6 tbsp flour
  • 3 tbsp packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp butter (and a little bit more for the foil)
  • 3 apples of choice
  • lemon juice

Combine oats, flour, sugars, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly.  Toss bowl in the fridge while you prepare the apples.
Wash apples and pat dry.  Core and slice apples, then toss them with a squeeze of lemon juice.
Cut two squares of foil (about a foot each) and lightly butter the center of each piece.
Then place the apples onto of one of the foil pieces and then sprinkle with the crumble mixture.
Place the top piece of foil (butter side down) on the package and crimp the edges inwards until the package is well sealed. Wrap the entire package in another layer of tinfoil – this will help prevent burning around the edges.
Place over the fire or on the grill for about 20 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
