Small Recipes... Apple Crisp

 The recipe I am going to give you here is just right for one person and excellent. I used a Braeburn apple which I usually have on hand and it took about 8 minutes to get ready for the oven and baked just right in the time in the recipe which is 20 minutes. 
  The recipe is in the Betty Crocker Cooking for One that Sue has and I am going to try some other recipes from the book. It was just the right amount, used ingredients I always have on hand and no leftovers. Perfect! 
Apple Crisp For One
1 medium sized apple peeled and sliced 
1 tablespoon of all purpose flour or all purpose Gluten Free Flour
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon oatmeal or GF oatmeal
Dash each of cinnamon and nutmeg and a pinch of salt
1 tablespoon soft butter
 Peel and slice apples in to ¼ inch thick slices place in unbuttered 10 ounce baking dish or custard cup. 

 Mix the remaining ingredients, sprinkle over the apple slices and bake in a 375° F. oven for 20 minutes. Let cool and eat while still warm with half and half, cream or a small scoop ice cream. if desired.  


  1. I bet this would work great for pears.

    1. It does (I tried it) and peaches also. For the pears I sprinkled with a SMALL amount go lemon before adding the topping. Either way would be good.

  2. Did up an apple for my dessert after supper tonight! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  3. This sounds very good. Even if you aren't living on your own, if you find yourself with one apple that needs to be used, this would be a nice option. I even think I might be able to remember it without referring to the recipe: one, one, one, one, dash, dash, one!

    1. I have been making the crisp topping ahead and freezing it in one apple servings in separate snack bags. Then I only make that mess one time. I hadn't thought of remembering it that way. Sounds like a good idea.
