Mini Apple Crisp

With my family's hectic schedule, I cook for one quite frequently. My mini apple crisp recipe is so simple to make. It works equally well as a nice single-serving dessert for me or as an afternoon snack when our oldest son gets home from school. —Sherry Krenz, Woodworth, North Dakota

    I decided to do two granny smith apples, added a tablespoon of sugar, cinnamon, 1 tablespoon of butter, and a splash of vanilla to the apples. These are not all exact measurements of course. I also added a pinch of salt to the crumble topping. Was perfect! Wasnt too sweet either!

    I love this recipe. I added about a 1/4 tsp cinnamon, and it tasted really good. Would definitely recommended for a beginner, overall really good recipe. Does not need any extra sugar, apples are nice and soft (I used granny smith).

    Great recipe for single serving. After making it once, I adjusted for my taste-used 2 cut up apples with a little cinnamon and nutmeg sprinkled in. For the topping- a little less brown sugar but more oatmeal

    Great recipe for one and easy to multiple ingredients for more servings. Also perfect for an after school snack, as suggested. I have premade them, stored in the fridge so that they are ready to bake for my teens to cook when they get home. I also have added raisins. You can easily tweak this recipe to suit your personal tastes.

    I don't see how baking for 35 40 minutes is considered an after-school snack...

    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.

    This is the best I've had yet, and so easy to adjust the servings.

    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!
