personal apple crisps!

Last night was the end of my mother’s visit from NJ. We had such a nice time while she was here. She helped me set up the food and decorations for my baby shower, bought me and baby Evelyn a few nice things, ate out at a few restaurants, went to the Pittock Mansion and finally, I got to cook and bake for her! Because my mom lives so far away, it is very rare that we get to enjoy a home cooked meal together. When I was growing up, my dad did the cooking, not my mom and it is only recently that I started to embrace my love of cooking so I feel that I probably have only made her 4 or 5 meals. Last night, I made us some chicken, rice and asparagus – nothing special, but it was delicious! We all licked our plates clean. For dessert, I made personal apple crisps – and I must say, for how easy they were to make, they sure did impress! Both my mother and Benny were upset that I only made us each a 2 oz ramekin, but portion control is good. I would rather finish my dessert wanting more than wishing I hadn’t eaten it at all!!


What you need:

  • 1 granny smith apple, peeled and sliced
  • 1/8 tsp sugar
  • 1tbs melted butter
  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • 2 tbs oats
  • 1 tbs flour
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • vanilla ice cream (optional)

Preheat oven to 350.

Separate apple slices into 3 2oz ramekins. Distribute sugar evenly on top of each dish. In a separate bowl, combine melted butter, brown sugar and flour. Add oats and cinnamon. Distribute topping evenly on top of each dish. Bake for 35-40 mins. Allow to cool a bit and top with ice cream! (We had coconut bliss tropical vanilla.) ENJOY!
