Easy Individual Apple Crisps

Easy Individual Apple Crisps: a sweet, cinnamon spiced apple filling with a buttery, crunchy topping! Serve them warm with vanilla ice cream and perhaps a drizzle of salted caramel sauce for a quick and delicious dessert!

These easy individual apple crisps are delightful! Sweet, juicy apples full of cinnamon flavor are topped with a thick layer of buttery, crunchy topping.

They are super fast and easy to whip together… just slice the apples, add sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon, prepare the topping combining flour, oats, butter, cinnamon and sugar and and pop in the oven. In 45 minutes you will have a delicious dessert!

I like to use Gala apples, but feel free to use your favorite baking apples (adjust the amount of sugar if they are not too sweet) or a combination of sweet and tart apples. You can also throw in some chopped nuts to add a bit more crunch.

Test the tenderness of the apples with a skewer, if they are still not soft enough but your topping is brown, cover the crisp with foil so it doesn’t burn.

This is a great dessert to make when you are entertaining, prepare it early in the day, cook it, refrigerate, and heat it up just before serving.

Serve the individual apple crisps warm with a big dollop of whipped cream, Greek yogurt or vanilla ice cream and perhaps a drizzle of salted caramel sauce. I love when the ice cream starts melting into the crisp!

Individual apple crisps will keep covered and refrigerated for up to 3 days.

Enjoy the flavors of apple pie without the fuss of a crust. Grab a spoon and dig in! 🙂

Easy Individual Apple Crisps: Serve them warm with ice cream and perhaps a drizzle of caramel sauce for a quick and delicious dessert!

Ingredients
  • For the apple filling:
  • 2 medium apples peeled and sliced into thin wedges
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • For the crumble topping:
  • 60 grams (1/2 cup) all-purpose flour
  • 90 grams (1/3 cup+1 tablespoon) light brown sugar
  • 45 grams (1/2 cup) old fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 55 grams ( 1/2 stick) unsalted butter chilled and cut into small cubes
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C (375 degrees F). Grease 4 ramekins with butter or cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, toss the apples with lemon juice, cinnamon, and sugar.
  3. In another bowl, mix together the flour, oats, sugar and cinnamon. Now blend in the butter with a pastry cutter or with your fingertips until moist clumps form.
  4. Divide the apples evenly between the ramekins and top with the crumbly mixture.
  5. Bake for 30/35 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the apples are soft and easily pierced with a skewer. If the crisp gets brown too quickly, loosely cover it with foil.
  6. Serve these individual apple crisps warm with whipped cream, Greek yogurt or vanilla ice cream if desired. Enjoy!

  1. I love that these yummy apple crisps can be personalized so perfect for portion control though mind you they look so delicious I may be tempted to have two! 🙂

  2. Hi Elena,
    Since my kids are grown and gone, and I can prepare yummy stuff that won’t be devoured while I’m at work, I would like to make individual crisps and freeze them. my question is should I freeze before baking or after? And, how long will they last (without my going crisp wild) in the freezer?
    I’m so excited to make them!
    Kate

    • Hi Kate!
      You can freeze baked or unbaked crips for up to 3 months.
      If baked: thaw overnight in the refrigerator, then warm in the oven at 175 degrees C (350 degrees F) for 20 minutes or until heated through.
      Unbaked: allow to thaw overnight in the refrigerator, then bake for 30/35 minutes at 190 degrees C (375 degrees F).
      Let me know how it goes! 🙂
