Classic Apple Crisp


  • 2/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup pecans, toasted, chopped
  • Pinch fine salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into bits
  • 4 medium baking apples, such as Braeburn, Rome, or Golden Delicious,
  • Unsweetened whipped cream, optional


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly butter 6 (6-ounce) ramekins.

Whisk the oats, flour, brown sugar, pecans, and salt in a medium bowl. Rub in the butter with your fingertips until it is in even, pea-size pieces. Peel, core, and coarsely chop the apples and divide evenly among the ramekins. Scatter the crisp topping evenly over the fruit in each ramekin.

Transfer the ramekins to a baking sheet and cook until the fruit bubbles around the sides and the top is golden, about 30 minutes.

Preheat a broiler. Place the crisps about 4 inches from the broiler and cook until golden brown, about 30 seconds. Let cool about 15 minutes before serving. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.

Pilluvuyt porcelain ramekins or small souffle dishes are perfect for serving these individual apple crisps.
