It all started one day when I was hungry for apple pie. I didn’t have store bought crust in the refrigerator and I didn’t feel like making the pie crust.
What is a girl to do...Apple Crumb Pots.
The ingredients are simple. Slice 6-7 of your favorite baking apples. I love Ginger Gold for baking. The apple slicer is a well used gadget at our house.
Use non-stick spray or butter to cover the bottom of 6 ramekin cups. Place the ramekin cups on a baking sheet. Fill the cups up with your favorite baking apples. This is a great job for helpful little hands.
Combine 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Sprinkle about 1/2 – 1 teaspoon of mixture per cup over the apples, depending on the type of apple that you like. Ginger Gold is on the tart side, so I sprinkle a teaspoon on each cup. Set aside the balance of this mixture to make the crumb topping.
The crumb topping…my favorite part. Take the balance of the sugar/cinnamon mixture and add more sugar until you measure 1/2 cup. Combine with 3/4 cup flour and 1/3 cup cold butter. I use my clean hands to mix together until crumbly.
Sprinkle the crumb mixture over the apples. You can also see why you need to use a baking sheet.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 40 minutes or until bubbly.
At this point, your next major decision in life will be what to put on top of your Apple Crumb Pots: Homemade Whipped Cream or your favorite ice cream.
On this day, we chose the homemade whipped cream.
For our anniversary, I made my honey Blueberry and Peach Crumb Pots. We chose vanilla ice cream that night.
