Warm Apple Crisp

And the beat goes on and on and on and on and…

Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching and it’s making me a little nervous. I love to bake, but I try not to.  I try not to keep baked goods in my house because I know what will happen. Long story short, not having them in the house is the best strategy.   Warm apple crisp, you get what I am saying?

Onward, last night I was trying to come up with an alternative for Apple pie. Something easy, guilt-lessy, modest, wholesome, respectable, delicious.

So I got online and started searching recipes.   I found so many great options! Cobblers, crisps, strudels, tarts, crumbles, streusel and pies…oh my!  BOOM! I remembered… I already have a great recipe for apple crisp in my arsenal!  Now, I just needed a new way to present it. That’s when this combination came together!

What I wanna talk about today are Individual Apple Crisps. First I want to talk about how great individual sizes are. Think instant portion control. SCORE!  Think basic ingredients.  YES!  Think quick and easy.  CLAP!  Think delicious. APPLAUSE!

Plain and simple these are a crowd pleaser, everyone will enjoy these.  If anyone feels like they are a too modest, blah or boring….they can put whatever extra topping they want on it.   Ala mode OR ice cream AND caramel sauce AND whipped cream OR cheddar cheese.  Merely suggestions…just sayin’, not doin’. Really, anything else their heart desires.

5 Apples

1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

1 package (9 oz) yellow cake mix

pinch salt

Apple Crisp ingredients


Pre-heat oven to 350.  Core and cut apples in half.  Place apples in a deep dish baker.

Melt butter in microwave for 45 seconds or until melted.  Chop nuts.  Add nuts, cake mix, oats, sugar, salt and cinnamon to bowl, mix until crumbly.  Top apples evenly with mixture.  Add bit more melted butter if mix is to dry, you should be able to form a crumbly ball.

Bake 35 – 40 minutes or until apples are tender and topping is golden brown.  Serve warm with topping if desired.
