Individual Apple Crisp with cinnamon ice cream

Apple crisp in ramekins! Hooray! I love the fall! This one was made at Gillian’s dinner party where good people met up with great food.

*If you don’t have an ice cream maker try the Cinnamon Whip Cream at the bottom of this page– or try to find some Edy’s Grand Cinnamon Ice Cream at your local grocery store.)

Apple Crisps baking away in Gillian's oven

Individual Apple Crisps
This one if my own!

Needed: 8 Ramekins for baking

4 golden delicious or granny smith apples
3 Tbsp flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1 Tbsp lemon juice

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup oats
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
6 Tbsp butter

Start by peeling and then dicing the apples. Throw these into a large bowl and mix in 3 Tbsp of the flour, all of the brown sugar, maple syrup, and lemon juice. Scoop evenly into ramekins, leaving enough room on top for a layer of your oat mixture.

To make topping: Mix together remaining flour, oats, ground cinnamon, and salt. Dice cold butter and mix in with your fingers, kneading until completely mixed and you have a nice crumble going… Sprinkle this mixture on top of each ramekin. Voila! Now, bake at 350 for about 30-35 minutes, or until the smell is so delicious that you can no longer stand waiting!

Let cool for about 10 minutes before adding a scoop of ice cream to each one. Make sure to warn your guests that their ramekins may be hot!
