Individual Apple Crisp
I don’t know about you but when September rolls around and the kids are back in school I immediately start leaning to some of my fall favourite foods. I love the colours of the leaves turning, still somewhat warm in the daytime air but cool at night. Harvest wrapped up last week for the crop farmers in my area but the garden harvest continues to roll in. One of the first desserts I always lean towards on a cooler day is the classic apple crisp recipe that my mom always would make on weekends. Last night I made this classic recipe with a twist; these individual apple crisps. How cute would these be at a family dinner?
- 6 medium apples (sweeter apples are better)
- ¾ cup rolled oats
- ½ cup packed brown sugar
- ½ cup flour
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ⅓ cup butter
- Whipped cream or ice cream as garnish
- Wash and core all 6 apples, dry and set aside.
- Combine rolled oats, sugar, flour and cinnamon.
- Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly, stuffing each cored apple tightly with the mixture and on top.
- Place stuffed apples in a deep dish adding a ¼ inch of water in the bottom of the dish.
- Bake at 350 degrees F. for 40 minutes.
- Add whipped cream or ice cream as garnish before serving warm.
