THe recipes are great & they make just enough for one or two to enjoy. THat way you can try lots more recipes! this is one of these great small batch recipes. Enjoy!

This is a delicious and easy way to make small crisps. Using Spartan apples meant that the crisp came out with just the right amount of sweetness. The topping was crispy and tasty. This one's a keeper!
