Makes 4 servings.

Ingredients
For crumble topping
½ cup flour
¼ cup oatmeal
⅓ cup brown sugar
¼ cup sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cinnamon
4 Tablespoons butter, chilled and cut into cubes


For apples
8 medium Granny Smith or Honeycrisp apples
4 Tablespoons butter
⅓ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ cup (125 ml) caramel sauce
⅛ cup powdered sugar


Method
Preheat oven to 400°F.
In a medium bowl whisk together flour, oats, brown sugar, sugar, salt and cinnamon. Cut in the butter with a pastry knife or two forks, or with your hands, until mixture is crumbly. Set aside.
Peel and chop 4 of the apples. Add chopped apples, butter, brown sugar and cinnamon to a medium sauce pan and sauté over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until apples are tender. Remove from heat.
Chop the tops off of the remaining 4 apples and reserve for baking. Peel off a spiral of the outside apple skin to decorate the outer flesh. Use a spoon to scoop out the flesh of the insides and discard. Remove just enough of the apple to make a "bowl" for the filling.
Fill scooped-out apples with apple filling from the sauce pan. Top with a generous amount of crumble topping.
Place stuffed apples and apple tops on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes until crumble topping is crispy and the tops are soft. While apples are baking, slowly heat caramel sauce. Serve apples warm with caramel sauce and sifted powdered sugar on top.
