Petite Apple Crisp


Here I am again, five days later and no post! Well between getting busy at work (in front of a computer all day) and coming home to troubleshoot my poor Macbook, I just want to step away from the computer! I need a techie break, well except my iPhone because that doesn't count. Luckily I am on the horizon of a new iMac and a corrupt free Macbook! The lovely people at the Apple store will hopefully be recovering my stuff and I can get back to my posting schedule.


On the bright side, I am happy to be in the kitchen and cooking away. With the last of the apples I picked in New York I decided to make an apple crisp.


If you don't have one of these, they are super fun! It will core, peel, and slice apples evenly and quickly. It also works for potatoes! For this crisp, I diced the apples into fourths since I wanted to make petites. 
 


I have been loving individual sized dessert lately, the little ramekins are just so darn cute and easy to serve. 

This crisp topped with some vanilla bean ice cream can cure any computer woes...as long as they last that is!
 

Petite Apple Crisp

6 small tart apples, (4 cups)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick oats
1/3 cup butter, softened
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 tsp ground nutmeg
ice cream

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease bottom and sides of 6 individual ramekins and set aside. Peel, core, and slice apples and arrange in bottom of ramekins. Combine brown sugar, flour, oats, butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg and mix till crumbly. Sprinkle topping over apples and bake for 20-25 minutes or until topping is golden brown and apples are tender when pierced with fork. Serve warm with ice cream. 


This weekend I am off to another wedding in Outer Banks, North Carolina. Thanks to Brown Eyed Baker I think I am all set as to where to go when we get some free time. Any last minute recommendations are always welcome!


Lastly I wanted to wish everyone good luck in the Project Food Blog Challenge, there have been some great "getting to know you" posts and recipes! I am excited for the next round of postings!

Happy Baking!

  10. I just LOVE mini crisps! I did a very similar one to this a few weeks ago, but with cherry pie filling. I wish we could have a crisp "swap" and try each other's versions, but yours is so easy to make that I think I'll just go ahead and try it! It looks great, Debbie. Thanks for sharing!

  18. I luv mini desserts. Besides being so darn cute, they're fantastic portion-control treats. Your apple crisp is picture perfect goodness! I need me one of those cool peelers/corers. :)

  19. wow. this looks absolutely amazing!! Is it possible to make with the peels left on and whole wheat flour? I've never baked anything like this before, but it looks like it isn't too complicated.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day!

  20. @Lisa: I have never made apple crisp with the peels on, so not sure how that would turn out. You can definitly use whole wheat flour in this recipe, let me know how they turn out!

  23. I just made an apple crisp last night and the recipe I use is very much like yours -- except the two of us ate it all! (We were out of ice cream, so we just poured heavy cream over -- still delicious!)

  24. Ooooh these look like a great way to use up some apples. I don't have one of those apple slicer thingies but I really want one now. ;)

  25. Yum! It's the perfect size too!

  26. They look great! I've looked all over for good ramekins! They are either way too small or way to big!! I've wanted to make some individual portion cobblers. I think it's such a fun and cute way to serve dessert.

  27. Mmmm, these are so yummy and the perfect size! I made these tonight with fresh "Colette" apples from my tree. Thank you for sharing this.
