Best Ever Individual Apple Crisp Recipe

Two of my favorite Fall flavors…apples and caramel. This rustic Fall dessert is both delicious and comforting. Is there anything that smells better baking in the oven than a fresh homemade apple crisp? It’s like bringing the aromas of Fall right indoors.  Mmmmmm cinnamon, apples, and caramel. No need for a scented candle here.

This recipe is so easy to make. Just the right recipe for all those apples you harvested and don’t know what to do with. This dessert bakes while you are eating dinner and while you are digesting, cools to a warm just-right temperature.

So what are you waiting for? Bake one in the oven with tonight’s dinner.

    I found your wonderful apple crisp when I ran into Molly’s Sugar Rush: Sweet Sixteen blog. Mmmm! Caramelly goodness bubbling over the edge of the adorable ramekins! Can’t wait to see the rest of your fall and winter posts!

    Made a double batch of these little beauties for a dinner party. I did not change anything except I added a handful of chopped pecans to the topping. They received rave reviews from everyone! I served with Washington apple pie ice cream on top. I also think everyone loved having their own individual dessert. I will be making these again real soon! Thanks.
