"With my family's hectic schedule, I cook for one quite frequently," relates field editor Sherry Krenz from Woodworth, North Dakota (at left).
"My Mini Apple Crisp is so simple to make. I works equally well as a nice single-serving dessert for me or as an afternoon snack when our oldest son gets home from school."
Meet the Cook: Just as soon as the first crop of apples is off the trees, I fix this crisp. Thanks to the butterscotch pudding, it's moist and sweet. It's popular at potlucks, and it's a nice snack. In fact, I'm reluctant to make it in the evening - I'm afraid someone will sneak down to the refrigerator at midnight and claim it!
My husband and I have four children, ranging in age from 21 to 8.

I MAKE "apple everything" in fall when the new crop is in, and I was happy to add this delicious recipe to my apple dishes. A lady at church shared it with me.
Sometimes I'll top the squares with a cream cheese frosting, especially if I'm having company.
