“A yummy one-biter! Whenever I ask 'what can I bring?' these top the list! Sweet cinnamon-scented apples held in a buttery crispy oatmeal cup and crunchy sweet topping. I like to make sweet treats to share with friends. I came up with this recipe so that I could bake and take apple crisp to share easily with everyone.”

Original recipe yields 4 dozen apple crisp cups

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 4 12-cup mini-muffin tins.
  2. Mix apples, water, white sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon together in a saucepan, and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. Simmer until apples are partially cooked, about 5 minutes; remove from heat.
  3. Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl; cut the butter into the flour mixture with a pastry cutter until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Place a heaping tablespoon of the crust mixture into a mini muffin cup, and press it into the cup so that it covers the bottom and pushes up the sides of the cup. Make the crust go all the way to the top of the little muffin cup, and patch any holes with more crust mixture. There will be crust mixture left over. Place about 2 teaspoons of apple filling in the crust. Sprinkle about 1 teaspoon of the remaining crust mixture on the filling.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.

hello. i'm the submitter of this recipe. i forgot to add an important side note to this recipe. if i have apple juice on hand, i'll use it in place of the water. i find that it adds another layer of flavour and sweetness to the apples.

REALLY awesome! I only had honeycrisp apples on hand and those worked beautifully. It IS a bit labor intensive, pressing the crust into all those little tins, but so worth it in the end. Tip on making the crust easier - cube your cold butter up and put it in the freezer. Put all of the crust mixture except the oats into your food processor, then add the frozen butter. Pulse until resembles coarse crumbs. Transfer to a big bowl and then mix in the oats. MUCH faster than cutting it in and distributes beautifully. I made these exactly as described but did add a little vanilla to the apples. Very delicious. Took longer than stated to cook, about 30 minutes. Ultimately I put the broiler on to brown the tops better. I will make these often in the fall. Thanks for the recipe!

These are delicious! I have become a HUGE fan of these little treats. They are the perfect little dessert! I have made these many times since I discovered this recipe. The thing that makes it so perfect is that you can make the crisp part and the filling part ahead of time and refrigerate it. Put together the cups and filling just before you need them. Bake them as directed. However, the *best* thing is that you can actually make them, bake them and then freeze them. They are actually *perfect* this way and taste exactly the same as freshly baked and cooled. Pop them out on the counter just a little while before a party or guests coming. I keep them in the freezer now because you can actually defrost them in the microwave, too, in just a few seconds. They are great to have on hand. I do cut down on the butter by about 1/3, but other than that these are the absolutely perfect little treat. Thanks, Weeble!
