Baked Apple Slices with Peanut Butter Crumble (AKA Peanut Butter Apple Crisp)

Recipe compliments of Hershey’s

PB Apple crisp

As promised, here is the recipe for the oh-so-delicious peanut butter and apple goodness! I pulled this recipe from this book. I highly recommend this little gem and have made several delicious desserts featured in here. For instance, I’ve treated my family and friends to the Chocolate Almond Cheesecake, Hershey’s Special Dark Truffle Brownie Cheesecake, Chocolate and Peanut Butter Filled Peanut Butter Blondies, and the good ol’ favorite: Peanut Butter Blossoms! And let me tell you, ALL were absolutely delicious! I wouldn’t lie about this stuff, folks! Smile

So, next time you happen to have several apples on your hands, try this baby out:

Baked Apple Slices with Peanut Butter Crumble (AKA Peanut Butter Apple Crisp)

PB Apple crisp 2

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups peeled and thinly sliced apples
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, divided
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, divided
  • 1 cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup REESE’S Creamy Peanut Butter
  • Sweetened whipped cream or ice cream (optional)

Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch square pan.
  2. Stir together apples, 3/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup flour in a large bowl. Spread in prepared pan; dot with 2 tablespoons butter. Combine oats, remaining 3/4 cup flour, remaining 1/4 cup sugar, and cinnamon in medium bowl; set aside.
  3. Place remaining tablespoon of butter and peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at Medium for 30 seconds (or until butter is melted); stir until smooth. Add to oat mixture; blend until crumbs are formed.Sprinkle crumble mixture over apples.*
  4. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until apples are tender and edges are bubbly. Cool slightly. Serve warm or cool with whipped cream or ice cream, if desired.

*I had to break my oat mixture up a but with my fingers. The PB makes it a bit sticky, so don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty!

Thank you Hershey’s for such a treat! Mmmmmm

I hope you all enjoy this as much as I did!
