Individual Apple Crisps Spices apples for Individual Apple Crisps Individual Apple Crisps recipe Individual Apple Crisps desserts Individual Apple Crisps

We have been posting lots of desserts lately. It’s making me a little sweets crazy. I try and keep copious amounts of sweets out of my house because I know what will happen. If I know there are sweets in the house, I basically just think about them all day until I no longer have the strength to stay away and then eat it all. Last night I was watching Newsroom with John (BF) and he came back into the room with mint chocolate covered pretzels to share. Sneaky, because where the hell did those come from and how come I didn’t know they existed till now? Have you guys had mint chocolate covered pretzels? It’s like a thin mint only better because of the salt! It’s gonna become my new favorite. So the other sweet I wanna talk about today are these Individual Apple Crisps. First I want to talk about how great individual sizes are. For someone who has a boyfriend who takes bites that are like 5 times the size of my normal bites, I appreciate that it is very clear that this is my portion and that is your portion. You get what I am saying? Second you can have your eaters put whatever else on it they want. Like ice cream AND caramel sauce, whipped cream, or anything. These would be so perfect for Thanksgiving, or fall dinner parties. Cute stuff. Enjoy!

Individual Apple Crisps a La Mode
Makes 4

1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into tiny cubes
4 golden delicious apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cardamom

4 scoops vanilla ice cream (or flavor of choice)

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease 4 (8 ounce) ramekins with butter. Set aside.
2. For streusel: Place oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon, and brown sugar in a mixing bowl and stir together.
3. Cut in butter until a coarse mealy texture forms. Place the bowl in the freezer for 20 minutes.
4. For filling: Combine all filling ingredients into a large mixing bowl and toss together until thoroughly mixed. Divide filling mixture into prepared ramekins and set aside.
5. Remove streusel from freezer and fluff with a fork until crumbly in texture. Divide streusel between the ramekins. (you want the crisps to be filled all the way to the top of each ramekin)
6. Place crisps onto a baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Allow crisps to cool for 7 to 10 minutes before serving each with a scoop of ice cream on top.

    I love the idea of an individual plate. It makes it seem so special to have your very own! Looks super easy. I love that your food looks real and not perfected for food photography!

    I would like to try this recipe for an upcoming get together. It’s unclear which are the streusel ingredients and which are filling ingredients, could you clarify?

    Oh Newsroom, so good! So are these crisps. Your story reminds me of “Joey doesn’t share food!”

    I so hear you on the 5 bite to one bite size difference! Whenever my husband and I share food I get all stressed out and feel like I have to eat way too fast simply to end up eating my share of whatever it is! These, therefore, are perfect. Can’t wait to try them!

    Haven’t been to your page in awhile and miss the cleanliness of the design (the animated ads are tacky). On the other hand, your recipes always look amazing and this is what it should be about! Thanks for sharing.

      Hi Lyndsey, thanks for reading. We have ads so we could attempt to stop going out of pocket on the recipes we make and share every week. It took us a very very long time to decide to finally out them up, and even now they are not up all the time. We know they fudge up the aesthetics, believe me. Thanks for your comment!

    I love it! I am curious, could be made the same way but not put into individual cups or is it not?

  17. Ruth Not Specified Not Specified

    Can these be warmed up in a microwave? I think these would be great for an office potluck.

  18. Shireen Not Specified Not Specified

    I hosted a dinner party last night and my guests loved this recipe. Served warm with vanilla bean icecream. I used spartan apples – delish!

  19. Christy Not Specified Not Specified

    I made thees last night for my hubby and myself. I actually found little ramkens that are like mini pie dishes at Homegoods. Super cute. They were a little smaller than a typical 8 oz ramken so I actually had enough apples and topping for an extra crisp. Ha- nice problem to have. Too much dessert. I chopped and peeled and cored the apples and added the spices a few hours ahead of time and stuck them in the fridge. I also made the topping ahead of time and just sat it out on the counter till I was ready for it. Assembling them couldn’t have been easier. And they made such a nice presentation with a scoop of ice cream on top (and I also picked up some caramel sauce). My hubby and I loved them. I told my mom she should make these for Thanksgiving. My SIL has celiac and as I told my mom since this isn’t like baking a cake or something I don’t *think* she’d have to worry about any GF flour conversions for the crumble topping. I also omitted the cardamom because I have no other recipes that call for it and it was $11 at the grocery store. Just not worth it for the 1/4 tsp the recipe calls for. I used nutmeg instead and no one would or could ever tell a difference. Also I do Weight Watchers and I tracked one at 9 smart points (not counting ice cream or carmel sauce). These were delicious. We both LOVED them. They just TASTED like FALL! And the presentation being a mini individualized dessert is just adorable. LOVED these! Fabulous recipe and super easy to make!!! As we both said it’s basically the inners of an apple pie without the pesky crust getting in the way. SOOOO GOOD! Thank you for the amazing recipe!
