Crisp Fall Days

Crisp Fall Days
Crisp Leaves
Crisp Apples 
I was looking through a "microwaving for one or two" cookbook and found a recipe for single serving of apple crisp and I thought why measure every time why not make a full recipe of topping and store it in the refrigerator and have it ready for an emergency dessert?  If I make individual servings for hubby and me I won't feel obligated to eat the rest of the 9 x 9 pan one bite at a time every time I walk past it.

Apple Crisp

1 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup butter  cut together using a pastry cutter
Store in airtight container in refrigerator
 cut apple into an individual ramekin peeled or not peeled sprinkle with cinnamon
 top with 1/3 to 1/2 cup crumb topping pat lightly

 another sprinkle of cinnamon 

Bake in microwave 2-4 minutes on high depending on power of microwave
Serve warm with ice cream

My favorite fruit......................whatever is in season. This crisp topping is wonderful on blueberries(much less time in the microwave, they explode) peaches, pears, or rhubarb.

Happy Fall,  Ann
