Skillet Amaretto Apple Crisp

Skillet Amaretto Apple Crisp



  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp Amaretto
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, cubed


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 Tbsp arrowroot starch
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 7 cups peeled and diced Honeycrisp apples
  • 3 Tbsp amaretto


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F place a baking sheet in the center of the oven. Grease a seasoned 10-inch cast iron skillet (or 2 quart baking dish). For the crumble topping, whisk together oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl; mix in amaretto. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or fork until large crumbs form. Keep chilled while preparing filling.
  2. For the filling, whisk together sugar, arrowroot starch, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add apples and amaretto and toss to combine. Spoon filling into skillet and top with chilled crumble. Place skillet on preheated baking sheet and bake for 1 hour, until filling is bubbling and topping is golden brown. Let cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes before serving.


Arrowroot starch is a natural thickener and creates a smooth, shiny sauce. Available online or in the natural foods section.
