"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."

"This is a great recipe. Who doesn't love their own dessert? Although it only makes 1 serving I easily adapted it to make 4 servings for my family by quadrupling the ingredients. After slicing the apples I cut them in half to easily fit my dishes. The topping gets nice and crispy and delicious. Next time I might add some chopped pecans but this recipe really is perfect just the way it is. I used Granny Smith apples and didn't feel they needed any sugar."

"Very easy! My mother and I liked to split one of these. Recommend increasing the quantity and distribution of brown sugar, but that's just our preference."

"I tasted the crumble before I put it on and realized that it hadn't called for salt. Overall, a nice base recipe to modify for what you need (I used pumpkin pie spice with the cinnamon as well as the salt)."

"I made this and it was delicious. I tripled the recipe. It looks similar to many other recipes available on taste of home. It's straight forward and tastes like apple crisp should. I will make it again!"

"I chose this recipe because I was looking for the topping. I spread it over a variety of frozen fruit (strawberries, peaches, pinapple, and mango) as a midnight snack - something warm and light, not TOO unhealthy, yet still hit the cravings. This worked very well!"

"I did enjoy the simplicity in multiplying this dish depending on the number of servings desired. I did increase the amount of cinnamon to a half teaspoon per serving. Great standby dessert as all the ingredients are readily available. I am looking forward to further experimentation on this brilliant concept. Thanks Sherry!"

"This was very good I made two for my family. I agree that the apples needed spice and sugar that is why I only gave it 4 stars. From now on I always make two and add 1 Tablespoon of sugar and 1/8 tsp of cinnamon to the the apples. Can't wait to try other fruits."

"This is so easy just as it is. I have low tolerance for sugar so I use only one T brown sugar. I have tried it with pears and plums and it was equally great. Next I'm going through all the fruits to see how they work. I multiply it based on the number of dishes I want to make. Everyone asks for the recipe. Thanks so much for sharing."
