This is a very easy recipe that makes 4 individual servings, so you can eat one, and save 3 for later, if you are so inclined (Ha Ha).

How To Make Mini Apple Crisps

First thing to do is peel, core and slice the apples. Then place the apple slices, brown sugar, flour, lemon juice and cinnamon into a large skillet.

Mix the ingredients well, to combine. Cook the apples on medium-low for about 10 minutes, or until the apple slices have slightly softened.

While the apples are cooking, use a pastry blender (or two forks) to blend the crumb topping ingredients in a small bowl. Easy!

Crumb topping is mixed to add to top of apple crisps.
Spray 4 ramekins with non-stick cooking spray. The ones I use are 4″ wide.
