One of the hardest things to adjust to after the kids grow up and move out is how to cook smaller amounts of food. I'm sharing one of my favorites today, Apple Crisp.
It's my special Saturday morning breakfast treat.
I make it in a 5" ramekin (please excuse the cork trivet, this is real cooking here folks-that baby is hot!).
I'm posting the recipe as I found it, and my "lighter" modifications.
Apple Crisp for One (or individual servings)
2 Tblsp softened butter - I use 1 Tblsp
2 Tblsp brown sugar - I use 1 Tblsp
3 A/P Tblsp flour - I use 1 Tblsp-whole wheat flour is nice
2 Tblsp oats - I use 1 1/2 Tblsp
1/8 tsp cinnamon - I don't add this
1 Apple, peeled and sliced - I use a sweeter one, Red Delicious, etc.
1 Tblsp raisins - I add them if I feel like it...
Add apples and raisins to baking dish, mix the rest together and crumble on top of the apples.
The original recipe says to cook it at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
I have a countertop oven for small dishes like this, I use 400 degrees for about 18-20 minutes. Just check the apples to see if they've softened up, and that the topping is nice and brown.
Hope you love it if you try it:@)
