Ingredients

  • 6 Granny Smith apples thinly sliced (you can peel or not, either way works)
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 3 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

Crumb Topping

  • 2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1-1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup butter melted
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Optional: salted caramel sauce ice cream or cool whip

Instructions

  • Crumb topping: Combine the sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add butter and mix until crumbly. Set aside.
  • Apple layer: In a large bowl combine brown sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon. Add apples and stir until all coated with mixture.
  • Cut out (8) 18 inch sheets of heavy duty aluminium foil. You will use two pieces of foil for each packet.
  • Divide apple mixture equally onto each foil packet. Add 1 cup of crumb topping over each packet of apples. Seal and close up packets.

Make it Now

  • Oven: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place foil packets onto a baking sheet. Then place into preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes or until apples are cooked through and crumb topping is golden brown. Carefully open foil packets, top with caramel sauce drizzle, ice cream or cool whip if desired and serve.
  • Grill: Grill foil packets directly onto the grill for 12-15 minutes or until apples are cooked through and crumb topping is golden brown. Carefully open foil packets, top with ice cream or cool whip if desired and serve.
  • Campfire: Your campfire should have been going for a while so that you have a nice 1-2 inch layer of hot & ready white coals. Place your foil packets on a grill 2 inches above the coals and cook for 12-15 minutes or until apples are cooked through and crumb topping is golden brown.
  • Carefully open foil packets, top with ice cream or cool whip if desired and serve.

Make it a Freezer Meal

  • Place foil wrapped packets into a gallon sized labeled freezer safe bag. Seal bag, removing as much air as possible and freeze.

Thaw and Cook

  • Place bag in refrigerator for at least 12 hours or up to 24 hours to thaw. Then bake as directed in the make it now instructions above.

Notes

Which foil is best? There is regular aluminum foil, heavy duty foil and even non-stick foils. For this dessert I would recommend using heavy duty foil so you can hold all of the goodness in. But can you make them in regular foil? Yes! Just double up on your foil for this dessert!
Baking this in the oven? No problem! Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place foil packets onto a baking sheet. Then place into preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes or until apples are cooked through and crumb topping is golden brown. Carefully open foil packets, top with caramel sauce drizzle, ice cream or cool whip if desired and serve.
