When I Go RVing with my family, we make everything over the fire. We grill steak,
veggies, potatoes and more. We even heat up our cider with mulling spices to stay warm over
the fire. It’s always the best dinners in the world.
By the time dinner is over though, I start to crave something sweet. Not something too
sweet, but something that will really hit the spot. You know what I mean?
Bourbon… Apples… Sugar…
When I have a sweet tooth craving around the campfire, I tend to make my Simple Bourbon
Apple Crisp. Made with tons of sliced apples, bourbon, brown sugar, cinnamon and more. This
one skillet dessert is so simple to make with minimal dishes or prep work. Seriously, it only
takes about 15 minutes of work.
So why does it only take 15 minutes?
Instead of baking the crisp, you will cook the apples then add a blend of oats, pecans,
and more sugar. Stir in this blend to the added crunch and texture that we all love about fruit
Add a little bit of bourbon for a night cap, and I am off to bed in the RV. Goodnight!
