Caramel Apple Crisp for Two


The other night after Little Guy was all snug in bed, I was sitting around craving something sweet (note: this is a common occurrence).  I looked around my kitchen searching for the perfect treat.  I spotted the beautiful apples that we had just got through our food co-op and then remembered seeing a recipe that talked about a single serving apple crisp.  I  decided that this was going to be my treat for the evening.

Only, there was one problem.  The hubs would most likely smell my treat and want half, if not all of it.  So, I doubled the recipe and added my own little special ingredient.

We sat down and devoured the warm, caramel apple goodness within minutes.  This will definitely be my go-to dessert for the fall.  It was so simple and required little to no clean up.  Now that's my kind of treat.

Enjoy!

Caramel Apple Crisp for Two

Ingredients:

2 medium apples, peeled and sliced
2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoon butter
4 tablespoons quick-cooking oats
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 to 2 heaping tablespoons Mrs. Richardson's Butterscotch Caramel Topping
Cream or Ice Cream (optional)


Directions:

Place apple slices in two small, greased ramekins.  Spoon Butterscotch Caramel topping over the apples.  In a bowl, combine flour and brown sugar; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add oats and cinnamon.  Sprinkle over apple slices and caramel.

Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until tender. Serve with cream or ice cream if desired.

  11. I love this idea. I could probably eat a 9 x 12 pan of this but I think I will be better off with the single serve. Thanks for sharing.

  15. I love apple crisp, so smart making in ramekins, forced portion control (at least for me!) Pinned and can't wait to give your recipe a try!

  16. Did this in the microwave - 6 minutes on high or until you can cut easily through the apples with a knife (hate heating up the kitchen with the oven if I don't have to!). I also made my own butterscotch sauce here: http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2009/12/ridiculously-easy-butterscotch-sauce/
    since I live in Sweden and don't have access to such things in the stores. It turned out great, but make sure to wait 15 minutes or so to eat it so everything thickens up. Thanks for the recipe!!

  21. This looks amazing - I might have to make this tonight! Single serving (or for two) are so much better than a whole tray of brownines or something. I can never stop at just one, unless there is JUST ONE! :)
