Ingredients

4 large

Honeycrisp apples

1 cup

large flake, instant oatmeal

¼ cup

all-purpose flour

1/3 cup

brown sugar, packed

½ tsp.

salt

2 tsp.

cinnamon

½ tsp.

nutmeg

¼ tsp. 

ginger

½ cup

cold butter

Directions
  1. Soak two maple planks while the grill preheats to 375°F. 
  2. While things are preheating and soaking, core the apples using a spoon or melon baller to hollow out the inside of the apples without cutting all the way through. 
  3. Mix the oatmeal, flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Using a pair of knives, fork, or a pastry cutter, combine the butter into the oatmeal mixture until it makes little clumps that resemble wet sand with oatmeal in it. 
  4. Carefully fill the apples with as much of the oatmeal mixture as possible, overflowing the top of the apple so that the tops get really nice and crisp. Place the apples onto the soaked planks, then onto the grill. 
  5. Bake the apples for 30 minutes, or until the apple provides no resistance when poked with a knife or toothpick, and the oatmeal is crispy on top. 
  6. Serve hot off the grill topped with ice cream, whipped cream, maple syrup, dried cranberries and pecans, caramel – use your imagination.

When plank grilling, you should soak your planks to prevent ignition. However, did you know you can soak your planks in things other than just plain water? For this Plank Baked Apple Crisp try soaking the planks in apple wine, apple juice, cider, cranberry juice, or any other liquid you think would complement the flavor of this dessert.
