Notes About Mini Apple Crisp for One:

  • Why would you need a single serving of apple crisp?  You may be on a diet, and this is good portion control. Or, if you are a family or one or two, then a normal sized pan is just too big.
  • In all reality, this could be a apple crisp for two recipe.  It just depends on how big of a serving size you are searching for.
  • Approximately 1 cup of sliced apples is the perfect amount. This tends to be one large or 2 medium sized apples.
  • If you want more cinnamon flavor, you can add 1/4 teaspoon.  Another option would be to sprinkle the apples with the cinnamon instead of putting it in the topping.  Either way, this individual apple dessert is divine.
  • You would think that the cooking time would be much less than a normal size pan, but it actually turns out to be the same to get the apples to the correct tenderness.
  • Do you have vintage Corning Ware?  If so, you may have one of those adorable little baking dishes in your cabinet.  The 22 ounce size is perfect to make a mini apple crisp.
