I've got a great little dessert recipe to share with you that is both cute and easy—Cinnamon Apple Crisp. Trust me, it's almost impossible to mess this one up. We served this apple crisp dessert to our Dinner Club guests last weekend and it was a big hit. They are quick to put together and taste amazing, especially with a little bit of vanilla ice cream!
Slice the apples into thin 1" pieces. I do this by using an apple slicer and then cutting each slice two more times (both longways and crossways).
Toss the apples in a medium sized bowl with the cinnamon, butter, and honey. To make the honey slide right out of the tablespoon (as opposed to sticking) measure out the melted butter first.
Evenly divide the apple mixture into 8 half-pint jars (or together in one pie plate if using). Place the jars on a large baking sheet.
In the same mixing bowl combine the crumble ingredients including the oats, flour, walnuts, melted butter, honey, and salt. Evenly divide the mixture over top the seasoned apples in the jars.
Cover the jars with one large piece of foil and bake for 25 minutes. Remove the foil, turn the oven up to broil, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes longer or until the topping turns a light golden brown. Serve with homemade vanilla ice cream (if desired) and enjoy!
Special equipment needed: 8 half-pint jars. Alternatively this dish can be baked together in one round pie plate.*To make this recipe Peanut/Tree Nut Free, omit the walnuts/pine nuts from the crumble topping.We recommend organic ingredients when feasible.Nutrition Facts
