Caramel Apple Crisp


I have been on a quest for panko bread crumbs for a while and couldn’t find them.  In a last few weeks they became available at my local grocery store and I received an offer to review the new Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko Bread Crumbs.  So this week I will be featuring recipes with Progresso Bread Crumbs and a super giveaway (stay tuned!).  I never thought about using panko in dessert, but let me tell you this is the best apple crisp I’ve ever had.  The panko makes it so crisp and crunchy, I am talking complete deliciousness!  Progresso has teamed up with Michael Chiarello with signature recipes that you can find on their site.  I found this recipe there and just changed it ever so slightly with caramel syrup instead of sauce, because it was what I had on hand.  There are quite a few signature recipes that all sound amazing.  This would be a great addition to your holiday menu, but it is quick and easy enough for a weeknight dessert or for the occasional surprise guests.  I have made this twice this week, it’s that good!  I was also thinking about making individual apple pies for Thanksgiving, using this topping.
