This was absolutely delicious, and what was really surprising was how good the microwave version is. Instead of apple or pear I used some overripe raspberries that I needed to hurry and get rid of before they spoiled. Heavenly !
Quick and easy and loved it. May cut down on the sugar but great as is. Cooked in the microwave and turned out perfect with the time.
Gave my hubby a nice surprise with this tasty dish...I'm not a big dessert fan...so I forget that the hubby likes it once in a while...glad I found this...I prepared it while dinner was cooking...I just tossed it in the oven and it was ready when dinner was finished...I topped it off with whipped cream...I got a happy hubby...=)
This crisp is perfect! I tripled the recipe to use up 3 slightly overripe Harry and David pears (YUM!) and this was the perfect way to use them! The topping was the perfect amount for the amount of pears and provided just the right amount of crunch. I will make this again. Was so easy to make, too!
I used a pear as I have several leftover from Thanksgiving!. I love the crumble on top. I didn't exaclty measure just one of those things to guess. I was disappointed with the pear. Although I added some fresh grated nutmeg, a little sugar & flour to them...they just didn't have the flavor to equal the topping. So if using pears...season 'em up really well. I'm sure apple is where it's at; I have some granny smith's too so may try that. This easily made 2 servings in a 160z ramekin.
*accidental submit* I used gala apples and the microwave. I didn't have any of the oats I was supposed to use so I used maple and brown sugar instant oatmeal instead. I love oats and cinnamon so I used more than needed. I used a butter substitute instead of butter. It came out great and not overwhelmingly sweet. A bit tart from apples which I liked. Because I microwaved it the topping wasn't crisp, which I was aware of before I made it. I think it would be great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
This is perfect doubled for 2. I used a loaf pan. Quite a nice serving. I also used half brown and half Splenda. Very tasty!!!!!!!!!!!! I have made this several times with different combinations of fruits. I have used frozen peaches. Once I cleaned out the 'fridge and used an apple and grapes I cut in half. We really enjoy this dessert. It is very versatile!!!!!!!!! Update - I quadrupled this last night. Perfect!! Excellent recipe! Update 12/11/10. I am giving this as a gift
for co-workers. I'm 8 timing the ingredients and putting in a cute Christmas jar from the dollar store. I'm attaching a card with the instructions for 1 or 8. I' m also advising it be stored in the 'fridge since it has butter in it. One serving of crisp is about 1/2 cup. I want to receive one of these as a gift !!!!
Super easy to make and really delicious. Great for those nights where you want dessert that can be made in half an hour tops. I did bake it for 35 minutes though as opposed to the 25; I like my apples really soft, rather than crunchy. Eat with ice cream to make it sublime.
Quick and simple. I used 1 apple and divided it between two ramekins, leaving the skin on the apple. Omitted the cinnamon as I did not have any but it tasted delicious without! Can probably cut back on the brown sugar and it would still taste just as great. Going to try making these with pears next time! I bet any fruit would work here... blueberries...peaches... my mouth is watering at the endless possibilities.
Wow! This was delicious! It was just right for the hubby and I. Thanks for sharing.
