Mini Apple Oat Crisp



Here I go again with my mini version. What can I say, I'm a sucker for small. I saw this recipe from about.com for an apple crisp. I had a couple baby fuji apples left. I figured rather than eating them straight up, I'll make something with them.

I adapted the recipe to make two small tart sized crisps. I also added cinnamon to the mixture. Apple and cinnamon really do go well together, right?

I chopped my apples into itt-bitty bits. Almost like a puree or apple sauce, but slices would suffice, and placed them into mini tart pans.  Made the crisp topping and added some oats then baked it for 15-20 in a 375˚F oven and I had my dessert for the night.  A good crunch texture with the softness of the apples. Yum!!

Makes 2 mini crisps.




Mini Apple Oat Crisps
adapted from about.com

1 large apple or 2 baby apples - peeled chopped
1 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp butter - melted
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp granulated sugar
1 Tbsp flour
1 Tbsp oats
2 Tbsp water
2 small ramekins

Preheat your oven to 350˚F

In a small bowl, toss the apples and cinnamon together and pour into small ramekins.

In another small bowl, combine the both sugars, flour and oats. Pour in the butter and mix well until it's like a crumbly consistency.

Pour the mixture over the apples, then pour the 1 tablespoon of water over each ramekin.

Bake for 15-20 min until top is browned. Let it cool slightly before serving.

Thanks for the idea. I've goat LOADS of apples at the moment and don't know what to do with so many ( I have 3 apple trees in the back of my house). I love the cute little minis. Have a wonderful weekend!

Love it! I make my desserts sometimes in individual ramekins or tart tins. They are so cute. The only problem is when you finish yours and want some more...
