This Iron Skillet Caramel Nectarine Crisp is anything but ordinary, but so incredibly easy! Slices of fresh nectarines are tossed with allspice and caramel before being topped with a gingersnap cookie crumble. Topped with a scoop of ice cream, it’s dessert perfection.
During the warmer months, there’s nothing like a dessert full of ripe, seasonal fruit. Especially when that sweet treat has the possibility of being topped with ice cream. This is where you should be nodding your head in agreement. You know how some things are just meant to be? That’s exactly what happened with the filling to this Iron Skillet Caramel Nectarine Crisp.
I had just gone through the fruit drawer in the fridge and pulled out a handful of nectarines that needed some attention before they went bad when I received a delivery from my friends at Robert Rothschild Farm that included product for future projects. As I opened the box and began to put things away, I spied a jar of Buttery Cookie Caramel Sauce and my mind shifted into overdrive at the possibility of combining the two ingredients.
Slices of fresh nectarines are tossed with allspice and caramel before being topped with a crumble that includes crushed gingersnap cookies. This fruit crisp is anything but ordinary and is practically begging to be topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and additional caramel sauce. I’m only happy to oblige! So happy that I may have made two of these crisps for our family in just three days. I guess you could say we enjoyed it?
Having trouble finding fresh nectarines? Being the kind person that I am, I also tested this recipe with fresh peaches with the same amazing results. Just look for fruit that’s more firm and not overly ripe.
A la mode is the way that fruit crisps were made to be served and this Iron Skillet Caramel Nectarine Crisp is no exception. Just be sure to pass the caramel to take this dessert over the top and make you the most well liked person at the table.
