Fall is right around the corner and in preparation for it, I have been trying new recipes that are perfect to have around this time of year.
Today I made mini apple crisps which smelled amazing while in the oven and tasted even better once served.
Such a simple treat but so filling.
- 2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
- 3 tablespoons of maple syrup
- juice of half a lemon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
- 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter
- 1 cup of rolled oats
- 3 tablespoons of light brown sugar
Preheat the oven to 425°F.
Place a baking sheet in the oven to heat.
Place apples into a saucepan along with the maple syrup, lemon juice, and allspice.
Stir all the ingredients together.
Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium.
Cover the pan and cook for about 5 minutes or until almost tender.
Melt the butter in a separate saucepan then remove from the heat.
Stir in the oats and sugar in the melted butter.
Divide the apples among four ramekins.
Sprinkle the oat mixture over the apples.
Place on the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for about 10 minutes or so, until lightly browned and bubbling.
A scoop of vanilla ice cream on top would have made this treat extra special.
Serve warm and enjoy!
