Best Apples For Apple Crisp

What are the best apples for apple crisp? TBH you can make this Grilled Apple Crisp Foil Packets using any type of apple you prefer.

If you’re looking for a sweet apple, try Cortland, Fuji or Golden Delicious. Apple varieties that are a little more tart with a hint of sweetness are Pink Lady, Granny Smith and McIntosh apples.

What is important is how crisp or soft you like your dessert. Crisper apples will hold up better when grilling than softer apples. Just experiment away with the apple of your choice till you get the firmness / softness / sweetness etc that you prefer.

    A recipe that starts with “preheat the campfire or grill” is a special kind of awesome! I can’t wait to try this! We live in the mountains in Colorado and have lots of opportunities for campfires, fire place cooking & more. MMmmmm baked apples! Perfection!

    With the summer just around the corner, we love to go camping, and this is such a unique dessert to take to the mountains with us. Can’t wait to make this over the campfire this summer!
