This time of year always makes me want to bake all of the things, and mostly pie. I really love pie, particularly of the apple persuasion (note the pie pops we made for the wedding, but forgive the subpar photography.) The issue with pies is that when I make them I tend to eat the whole thing in basically one sitting, which is probably not a good idea except on super special occasions. That’s where these little apple crisps come in. I have taken to making them on the weeknights when the ice cream in the freezer just won’t do.
Mini Apple Crisp
Ingredients per serving:
Original recipe from Taste of Home with some minor modifications (read: addition of less skinny stuff)
– 1 medium apple
– 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
– 3 tablespoons brown sugar
– 1 tablespoon butter
– 3 tablespoons Quaker Maple and Brown Sugar Oatmeal (or quick-cooking oats)
– 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
– 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
– Maple syrup
Place apple, peeled and sliced, into a small greased baking dish (I used a Corningware ramekin). Drizzle a small amount of syrup over the top of the apples. Mix flour and brown sugar in a small bowl and cut in butter until it resembles crumbs. Mix in cinnamon, nutmeg and oatmeal and sprinkle over apples. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes at 350 degrees.
