Individual Apple Crisps

I’m making individual sized desserts because that’s how I roll lately.

I found this recipe early in the morning last weekend and they were just the thing I needed to perk up a rainy cool Autumn day. I was excited to see that I already had all of the ingredients so I busted them out and had the oven going before my husband was awake. These are definitely not a bad thing to wake up to and the kitchen smelled wonderful.

I absolutely adore the smell of cinnamon and nutmeg and they are the perfect autumnal spices.

Fill the ramekins to the very top because the apples will cook down in the baking process, leaving a convenient spot for ice cream. 🙂

These apple crisps are like the filling of an apple pie meets the crumb topping of a crumb cake. The apples are soft and seasoned with lovely warm spices which compliments the crunchy sugar buttery topping. (Hello, it sounds like I’m a judge on a food tv show.)

Anyway, I like the option of making apple crisp into individual sizes so that the two of us don’t have to plow through a big tray of it. Our waistlines thank us. Although, there is one problem here (if you can call it that)… my husband said that he wanted more. Womp, womp. Also, my husband would tell you that even though it’s not pictured here, you must eat these warm and top them with vanilla ice cream. It’s the law, he just follows the rules, he didn’t make them. 😉

    Mmmm. Looks yummy – and simple. I like that there are only 2 servings because I don’t want a whole pie sitting around!
