I was feeling the call of the sweet tooth tonight, so I decided to come up with something akin to satiate the insatiable. This is my super-easy recipe for apple crisp for two.
2 apples, peeled and thinly sliced
juice of 1/2 a lemon
dash of vanilla extract (Do not omit!)
1/2 c oats (either old-fashioned or quick cooking)
2 T flour
2 T brown sugar
pinch of salt
1 T butter
- Preheat oven to 375. Toss the apples with the lemon juice and vanilla and place in a small casserole dish or bread pan or muffin tin (new idea!).
- In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients together.
- Cut the butter into very small pieces and add to the dry ingredients. Using your fingers, mix in the butter with the dry ingredients until you have a pebbly texture. Some of the oats and flour will be loose. It's fiiiiiine. Promise.
- Cover the apples with the topping. Bake at 375 for approximately 20 minutes. The apples will be soft; the topping crunchy.
