Fall Dessert Recipe: Mini Apple Crisp



I love an old-fashioned apple pie, but I don't always have the time to make a crust from scratch. An apple crisp or crumble is a delicious and fast way to make a rustic apple dessert.

I like to make mine in single-serving bakeware. It's so cute and perfect for dinner parties. I've been making crisps a lot the last few Falls, and I think I've finally perfected my topping recipe. It's so simple and delicious, and it's perfect for Fall. You can use the crust recipe for any kind of fruit crumble. I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as I do.



Ingredients

For Apple Filling:

*4 medium granny smith apples

*juice of 1 lemon

*1 tspn vanilla extract

*juice of 1 lemon

*1/2 tsp nutmeg

*1 tbs cinnamon

*1/2 tsp ginger

*3 tbsp light brown sugar

For Topping:

*2 C Old Fashioned Oats

*1 C light brown sugar

*1 C flour

*2 sticks melted butter

*1/2 tsp salt

*(dash of nutmeg and cinnamon optional)


Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 450 F.

2. Peel and cube apples and mix with apple filling ingredients. *Best to chill at least 1 hour to let the flavors marinate with the apples.

3. Combine the dry ingredients of the topping mixture in a medium bowl. Mix it together with your hands to lighlty break up the oatmeal. *Leave some of the oats intact.

4. Melt 2 sticks of butter and stir it into the topping mixture.

5. Fill your mini casserole dishes or a medium baking dish with the apple filling and generously top with the oatmeal mixture.

6. Bake at 450 F for 25-30 min. until topping is golden brown and apple filling is bubbling.
