Apple Filling

  • 6 cups apples peeled, cored, and thinly sliced (5 apples any variety)
  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar packed
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons apple pie spice


  • 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar packed
  • ¾ cup quick oats
  • ½ cup salted sweet cream butter melted (1 stick)
  • ½ teaspoon apple pie spice
  • vanilla ice cream optional topping
  • caramel sundae topping optional topping


  • Preheat your grill to 350°F (if you can pre-set the temp on your grill. If not, just be sure to keep an eye on the packets as they cook). If you are using a fire pit, you will need at least 2 to 3 inches of nice hot coals to set the packets over. It’s also important that your fire pit has a grate to place over the coals.
  • Using a large mixing bowl, toss together the thinly sliced apple, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and apple pie spice. Set it aside.
  • Using a medium-sized mixing bowl, stir together the flour, brown sugar, quick oats, apple pie spice, and melted butter. Set it aside.
  • Tear six 10x18-inch sections of heavy-duty aluminum foil.
  • Scoop 1 cup of the apple filling onto the middle of the foil.
  • Scoop out ½ cup of the topping on top of the apple filling.
  • Fold the long sides of the foil packets together, then fold the ends toward the middle.
  • If you are using a grill, place the packets around the edges of the grill. If you are using a campfire, place the packets on the grate over the fire pit. Allow them to cook for 20 minutes. Remove the packets and allow them to rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Always be very careful when opening the foil packets.
  • Top the apple crisp with vanilla ice cream and drizzle the caramel sundae topping.


PRO TIP: What is fantastic about these campfire apple pie packets is that they can be easily prepped ahead at home before you leave for camping — or at your campsite. Whatever works best for you.
PRO TIP: If you do not have a grill or fire pit, you can use your oven. You can bake the apple crisp foil packets at 400°F for 15 to 20 minutes.
PRO TIP: You can slice the apples the night before. Toss the uncoated apple slices in 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or cooler until you are ready to assemble the packets.
PRO TIP: Always keep an eye on the placement of the foil packets. Try to place foil packets around the edges of the barbecue or campfire grill, as the temperature on a grill or fire pit can fluctuate.
PRO TIP: Any leftover of these delicious foil packets can be eaten as breakfast the next morning. (It’s vacation! Enjoy!)
