Small Recipes...Topping for Fruit Crisps

 After making an apple crisp for one recipe a few times I decided to make the topping ahead and have it ready in the freezer. I made each batch alone as I wanted to make sure the proportions were right. Put each batch in a sandwich bag and then into a freezer bag. Date the package and now you are ready to make a nice dessert for just one anytime you feel hungry. 
 I have used it with apple the most but also with canned peaches and pears. The pears were a little bland so the next time I sprinkled them with some lemon juice. Canned or frozen or fresh fruit works and the baking time is only 20 minutes at 375° or until done , so with the crisp topping already made you can have this ready in under 30 minutes. If there are two of you just use two packages. 

Topping for Fruit Crisps for One
1 tablespoon of flour or Gluten Free Flour
1 tablespoon of oatmeal or Gluten Free oatmeal
1 tablespoon of packed brown sugar
teaspoon each of cinnamon and nutmeg
1 tablespoon soft butter
Mix all ingredients and then work the butter in. 
Use at once or store in freezer
